My cousin's second plane is his Tiger Moth. I found some info on http://www.rwrwalker.ca/RCAF_5050_5099_detailed.html
DH 82C Tiger Moth RCAF No 5071 July 17 1941 used as a trainer. Retired March 13, 1945 Civil Registry CF-COV

Pranged by owner and in the accident ripped off the rudder, bent the tank and some fuselage tubing.
It requires a bit of TLC to get it back into the air.

Went to a memorial get-together at my cousin's place in Washington. He has a grass strip on his property and a couple of planes. One is a Piper Cub Special PA-11 with a 90 HP Continental. This is his everyday plane. I got to climb into it and play with the controls. He has had it for 43 years!!!
