Photo Comment

This aircraft is the one in which HRH Prince Charles learned to fly in the 1970s and it still carries his livery, that of the Royal Flight at the time. It is seen here at the De Havilland Moth Club charity flying day in a demonstration of Barnstorming. The pilot has his arm out about to throw an egg. Children were invited to write their names on the eggs and if the egg survived the fall they were given to the child. Remarkably, a large number did survive !
