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.
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.
