A fantastic old B&W clip on how to fly a Tiger Moth with some interesting facts 

The Tiger Moth propeller was the very first propeller we had back in 2012, over the years we've found and bought a few in various states of disrepair and still its one of our most popular propellers. 
   
We mostly make pens from the old (WWII) Tiger Moth wooden propellers.

All the propellers we use have full markings so we can guarantee the aircraft and date used, we never use complete propellers only damaged unwanted propellers.
