Notes:

This Leapord Moth was built in 1934 as one of 132 built until production ended in 1937. According to the Isle of Man Government website, this aircraft was used by the Anti-Aircraft Co-operation Units at Ringway (Manchester) and Castle Bromwich until 1942. After changing ownership hands as a civil registered aircraft, it was later found in storage at Blackpool Airport in 1959 by Ron Paine of Derby Airways (later becoming British Midland). It was restored to flying condition and remained with the airline until 1969 when it went back into private ownership. Last info says the aircraft is based at Jurby after flying to the Isle of Man in 1981
