Tiger Moth
  • Built: Sometime around 1916

Tiger Moth is a red and yellow biplane, who is described to be reckless and daring. In the magazines, Tiger Moth has a face.

Bio

Tiger Moth was rude and had a tendency to fly dangerously low on the ground. He once did a dangerous trick above the Fat Controller and his family while they were on holiday. However, he got his comeuppance a few days later when he crashed into a haystack. Harold brought the Fat Controller to the sight when they were searching for him after he was reported missing, and the Fat Controller had a stern talk with his pilot, informing him that he and his plane will be grounded when he speaks to his controller about what happened.

When Tiger Moth was ungrounded, he would later help promote "Harry Topper's Fair" at Tidmouth Bay by carrying a large banner behind it.

Persona

He flies high and low, doing dangerous tricks to show off, and is very rude indeed. He learnt his lesson after crashing into a haystack.

Basis

Tiger Moth is loosely based on a de Havilland Tiger Moth with a radial engine and tail resembling that of a Sopwith Camel. According to an interview with Robert Gauld-Galliers by SiF, Tiger Moth is actually a Nieuport 17 Bi-Plane.

Appearances

Trivia

  • The design on top of Tiger Moth's wings resembles the top half of the old Japanese flag.
  • The red and yellow paint work resembles the Tiger Moth model (and plane for the live-action footage) in the "Thunderbirds" movie "Thunderbird 6". This makes sense, as David Mitton worked for Gerry Anderson on the original programme and subsequent show Anderson created.
  • Despite never having a face in the television series, Tiger Moth gained one in the Magazine stories.
  • In Railway Adventures, there are similar planes located at Elsbridge.
