Photo Comment

The Mohawk was one of the series of Miles Monoplanes including the Falcon, Whitney Straight, Hawk Trainer, and the Master and Magister trainers. It was a tandem two-seat cabin monoplane designed for Charles Lindbergh and this was the sole example built. It was written off in a landing accident in Spain in 1949 and the remains were found in a scrapyard in 1973. It was acquired by the RAF Museum in 2000 and has now been magnificently restored.
