A Tiger’s Tale
In this re-scheduled, illustrated talk, Clive Denney and his wife Linda present the story of how they rebuilt and renovated a classic, De Havilland Tiger Moth. The first Tiger flew in the 1930’s and was widely used as a basic trainer by the RAF and others. So successful were such Tiger’s that many still fly today.
It is apt that Clive and Linda have done this. For many years they, and their team at ‘Vintage Fabrics’, have been rebuilding and repairing similar classic aircraft for other flyers. Now they get to have one of their own!
We will hear stories of other adventures that Clive has had, flying Spitfires at display, and about other recent rebuilds in their workshops.
When: Friday 7th July, at 7:30pm
Where: Martlesham Heath Community Centre, Felixstowe Road, Martlesham Heath, Suffolk, IP12 4PB

The Shuttleworth Carnival
On Sunday 6th August the Martlesham Heath Aviation Society will have a coach trip to The Shuttleworth Carnival.
The Shuttleworth Collection is a fascination and extensive collection of aircraft, some going back to the Dawn of Flying. Some were seen in ‘Those Magnificent Men in their Flying Machines’.
In the afternoon some of their vintage and veteran machines will be flying. Undoubtedly with some surprises from visiting aircraft! This is a rare day out!
Non-members are welcome to come along. For information email: [email protected]
