Oxford Diecast Glasmoth Tiger Moth Set of 3 - 1:72 Scale

Product Code: 72TM004



This set of legendary De Havilland Tiger Moths comprises three authentic aircraft that made a historic flight from England to Russia and back in April 1989, marking a step forward in Anglo-Russian relations. The British pilots of the three planes were each accompanied by a Russian navigator and they made the trip in the true spirit and style of the 1930s. The detailed planning and international co-ordination took much effort and the trip, organised by Jonathan Elwes and sponsored by the Daily Mail and James Capel & Co., was not without incident. The full story is featured on the inside of the boxed set lid and makes fascinating reading. The title Glasmoth was a combination of the Russian word 'Glasnost' and Tiger Moth. Enough to say that the journey which started in England on 7th April was heralded as a great success. The three aircraft and their crew arrived safely back in England on 27th April 1989 after a round trip of 5000 miles with 33 stops during the three-week adventure.
