The 1932 vintage aircraft is captained by Wing Commander H Kulshrestra.

Tigermoth has served as a basic trainer in the formative years of Indian Air Force (IAF). The present aircraft HU-152 was resurrected and made fly worthy to re-live its glorious past.

The aircraft is planned for its return journey on February 23 to its home base in Ghaziabad.

The De Havilland Tiger Moth was a two seat, single bay biplane powered by a 145 hp gypsy major four cylinder inverted air-cooled engine. The primary trainer for the Royal Air Force during the second world war, it was the basic trainer in the Indian Air Force right from 1940.
