With reference to the D.H. Tiger Moths used in the film “The Blue Max” in fact both the articles are correct. The facts are that several Tiger Moths were used in the film to represent both British and German aircraft; also a Tiger Moth was rebuilt as a Pfulz DIII.
I was happy to note the reference to the Northern Aircraft Preservation Societies R.E.-8 parts; what was not noted was the fact that they went to Stockport in company with a Bristol F.2b fuselage, which was collected from Weston-on-the-Green. This was one of six fuselages used for many years to roof a blacksmith’s sheet. For those who may be interested, here is a list of the Societies’ aircraft;
Avro Avian G-EBZM.
Avro Avian G-ABEE.
Pou du Ciel.
Mik Messenger G-ALAH.
Standard Training Glider.
A powered version of the above.
Bristol F.2B fuselage
Also there is a third Avro Avian in Algeria which may be brought back as soon as money and transport is available to retrieve it from the middle of the Sahara, where it crashed nearly 30 years ago.
