The Moth Aircraft Corporation DH60M Gipsy Moth is a two-seat sports bi-plane.
The De Havilland DH.60 flew first on 22 February 1925. It was recognized
as an outstanding trainer and the British Air Ministry subsidised five
Moth-equiped flying clubs. Orders soon came from Australia; Japan and Canada,
where the RCAF acquired the Moth as an trainer to replace the Avro 504s.
When a Moth floatplane was delivered to the U.S.A., an agreement for
production in that country was reached. This resulted in the production
of 18 Gipsy Moth' by Moth Aircraft Corporation.
On 18 August 2002, the 1929-built Moth Aircraft Corporation DH60M Gipsy Moth G-AAMY (ex
N585M) was photographed at the Old Timer Fly-In at Schaffen-Diest airfield in Belgium.
