    I've been sent this pic of G-ANPC Tiger Moth which was also last noted at Castlemoate - does anyone know where this is now?

    How long ago was this? I'm asking how long ago because there was a guy in Ireland with a couple of Miles aircraft and the bits of a few more.

    This was a long time ago, about 40 years. If I remember correctly his name was Russell Wynn if Wynn Technologies.

    You are on the right track in that the aircraft in question G-AOGA was owned by Russell Winn at Kilbirttan House, Cork, Flowing his death in an aviation accident in 1982 his aircraft collection was sold on to various different sources. G-AOGA was moved by road from Kilbrittan to Castlemoate House however the fuselage was badly damaged in transit due to overtighening of the restraining straps. The remains of the fuselage, wings and engines were seen at Castlemoate House in 1991 however the cockpit section had been taken away prior to that - the story is that it went to a garden shed in Skerries but where exactly and to whom is unknown.
