Gypsy Moth 77

Gypsy Moth.

The 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.

The 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.

The 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.
