The Tiger Moth is one of Robin's favourite aircraft, having flown many hours in the type. The subject is G-TIGA based at Nottingham Airport, Tollerton. The Moth is owned by Derek Netherland, presently standing as the longest owner of a Tiger Moth in the country at well over 30 years.
The composition was helped along by the Chief Flying Instructor Dick Flanagan and his wife Carol who incidentally insisted on having long flowing blond hair for the day! The scene is out of his imagination, this being one of the nice things about being an artist - there is always a point at which you can take control of the painting and it becomes yours to manipulate as you wish.
