Pilots of the Diamond Nine display team abandon jumbo controls to reach for the sky in a bi-plane

De-Havilland Tiger Moths cruising over the Museum of Army Flying airfield at Middle Wallop in Hampshire yesterday. The 50-year-old bi-plane from which this picture was taken was being flown by a Concorde pilot, Steve Bohill-Smith, while several of his colleagues in the nine-strong squad are usually to be found at the controls of jumbo jets.
