I have just received a photo of DH Puss Moth G-ABLD on a flat sandy beach with low dunes behind. Can anyone add more information about 'LD for me ?

Does anyone know the whereabouts of or what bacame of Jim Mollison's plane? Just back from a great walk along the Portmarnock strand where he took off in 1932 -80yr anniversary coming up! No mean achievement considering prevailing winds are west-east across the n.atlantic.

The Puss Moth in your photo G-AAZP was based in Hawarden in the early 1970's. It was painted in the colours of Hawarden Flying Club, cream and olive green. There was also a Hornet Moth, Tiger Moth and three DH22 Chipmunks - I went solo in May 1976 in Chipmunk G-BBRV. Happy times.....

Pierre, "The Heart's Content" was overall yellow with the name in black script under the side windows with registry (G-ABXY) in large black letters on the side with the Union Jack on the upper rudder. I have sent you four pictures of the plane for reference.

The first man to make a solo crossing of South Atlantic was Bert Hinkler, the famous australian flyer, in 1931, from Natal, Brazil, to Bathurst, Africa. His plane (CF-APK) was also a Puss Moth, with a Gipsy III engine, and was the same that led him to the final flight in Northern Italy in 1933.

Jim Mollison landed at Pennfield Ridge, about thirty miles from where I live, and I want to do a watercolour painting of him about to land there. I have flown over the area and have a pretty good idea of the landscape he saw as he was about to put down. However, I have little or no information on the colour scheme of the Puss Moth he flew. Can anyone tell me how the machine was painted?
