There is no better way to appreciate the sights around this beautiful city of Dubbo than with a flight in our open cockpit 1938 Tiger Moth “Millie”.
“Millie”, a beautiful lady from a bygone era, helped train countless young Australian men during the tumultuous years of World War II. Often she would have been their first introduction to the joys of flying. They learnt all the basic manoeuvres in her; how to handle an aircraft, how to navigate and how to hopefully stay alive. “Millie” helped prepare them for the larger and more powerful Wirraway and Spitfire aircraft they would later fly in combat. All of them were young.
There is nothing quite like the sound of a Gypsy-Major engine and nothing quite like the sheer joy of flying in an aircraft of this vintage. It is just plain good fun and of course very memorable. A big ‘bucket list’ tick!
