During an Empire Air Day in Aldergrove in 1948 or 49 a Tiger Moth was doing a solo aerobatic display. He was a bit low for the loop and he only managed 90% of it.

The impact wasn't that hard and he waded out of the wreckage. Later on the remains were put on a trailer and towed around the spectators enclosure so that they could see what a crashed aeroplane looked like.
