    Bomb U-boats!!, that must have been hard work for the Moth, I bet they could only lift a pound of cheese and an old sock to bung at the Reich!! The instructor I flew with said the Aussies still have over 200 of these beauties flying, mainly as crop sprayers! What a great way to kill bugs! Leon.
    Ha! Ha! I'm sure the U Boats were terrified when they saw a Moth approaching !

    Apparently there are 50 Tiger Moths in UK, not all flying though

    Interesting read Taka, I am glad for the pilots that they cancelled this plan, stupidity in the highest, but then again it was our "darkest hour" and we were only left with the kitchen sink to throw at the Third Reich! Leon.
