Photo of the Day Friday 14th December 2012 – Not the Quality Resort Hotel, Norefjell.

Thought for the day…” Even if you are on the right track, you will get run over if you just sit there.”

An evening photo of the De Havilland Tiger Moth today, taken in Wanaka, New Zealand.  This 1930s design of biplane is still in widespread use, with over 8800 of them being built.   It is powered by a 120hp or 130hp Gypsy engine, and was a popular training aircraft, helped by its low stalling speed.   The maximum speed is around 175 km/h.
