de Havilland DH.60G Gipsy Moth was a variant of the DH.60
Moth powered by the de Havilland Gipsy I engine. Others had
a Blackburn Cirrus engine.
de Havilland Moth flew for the first time on 22 February 1925.
By 1929 the price of a Moth was £650, making it a very
affordable aircraft for many people. The type was used for
a number of record breaking flights.
British aviatrix Amy Johnson flew her Moth (G-AAAH "Jason")
11,000 miles to Australia. Jean Batten used a Gipsy moth for
her early flights, G-AALG (originally owned by The Prince
of Wales) for the England to India flight and G-AARB for England
to Australia return flights.
