Tiger Moth Joy Ride at the Gold Coast

Here is a brief video that I took on our little Canon Ixus 100 during my recent joy ride in a Tiger Moth.  The airfield is at Pimpama in what appears to be a cow paddock with a shed (just big enough for two planes).  The guys running the show at www.tigermothjoyrides.com.au were terrific and my pilot for the ride Norm did a great job.  The flight was really smooth and even the loops were gentle.  It was a great day and I highly recommend anyone to give it a go.

A Flight with a Difference!

For Andrew’s birthday I gave him a Tiger Moth Joy Ride voucher.  While on our holiday he took his  flight.  He did a Surfers Paradise Aerobatic Flight.  This included a thirty minute flight over  Surfers and before landing a couple of loop the loops and barrel rolls.

Andrew loved it.  He is always up for a bit of adventure (I am a bit of a chicken!). Here are some very poor photos of the loop the loops.  I was day dreaming and didn’t hear the plane come back and missed my opportunity to change lenses.  This is the best I could do….. but you get the picture.

His pilot was Norm Horner.  He was fabulous and delivered Andrew back to Ben and I in one piece…..thank you.  Andrew highly recommends the flight.  My Mum booked in for a flight ….. GO MUM!  You can find more info on the flights here.  Andrew also took some short videos while flying.  He will share them soon.
