This is our heritage & memory of Reza Shah. 73 years ago ,we were manufacturing & assembeling airplanes in Shahbaz aircraft manufacturing factory at Dushan Tappeh airport. this Tiger Moth II was one of 20 Iranian-built Tiger Moths at Shahbaz between 1938 to 1940 (Iran had 104 DH-82s in 1940). today morning IRIAF have been forced to evacuate its historic base in Ghale Morghi Airport completely under pressure of authorities to prepare condition for destruction of oldest airport in the middle east, which is our heritage & was established in 1922.
