Flying visit from the Air Squadron


Aircraft old and new paid a visit to the Isles of Scilly recently, as the Air Squadron came to the islands.

Islanders and visitors were treated to the site of some twenty or so aircraft landing  at the Isles of Scilly airport last week, as members of the Air Squadron flew out to Scilly to spend the night on Tresco. With a mixture of ancient and modern aircraft, there were some real treats on show. Built in 1931, the Puss Moth is one of only three in existence, notable for its diminutive size and folding wings. This particular Puss Moth has been flown to Australia, a journey that took some three months. It was a delight to see a de Havilland Dragon, whose sibling the Dragon Rapide was the first aircraft to provide a commercial service to Scilly between the wars.
