On 12 September 2010, nine DH.82A Tiger Moths and four DHC-1 Chipmunks gathered at Baragwanath to celebrate one hundred years since the first flight of Geoffrey de Havilland. The weather played the game, and amidst picnic blankets, champagne and a birthday cake, pilots swapped war stories and raised a glass to one of the most prolific aircraft manufacturers the world has ever seen.
