When I first attended the Omaka Classic Fighters Airshow in New Zealand in 2013, I became a little bit besotted with Jan and Gerry Chisum’s Gipsy Moth.
So when I got the chance to attend this year’s airshow, I knew immediately what aircraft and its owner was going to be at the top of my interview list.
This particular Gipsy Moth was first owned by Jan’s father Stan White, who flew it from the UK to Sydney in 1934 but after a number of other owners, Jan eventually brought it back to the family.
Such a special aircraft with a great story. (Rhi)
