Dear Stephen,
Further to your request, please find attached two pictures of the plane Tiger Moth DH 82 who was at the aero club of Guelma.
We are still investigating to know what it became after the independence of Algeria in 1962.
As soon as we have an answer, we will forward it to you.
Best regards and do not hesitate to contact us if needed.
Best Regards

Bonjour,
S'il vous plaît excuser mon utilisation de Google Translate !
Je suis actuellement des recherches sur l'histoire d'un aéronef que mon grand-oncle a appris à voler . Ce était Angleterre 1942 .
Je suis parvenu à retracer l'avion Tiger Moth DH82 de la propriété militaire à la propriété civile et ensuite à l' Aéro-Club de Guelma en Algérie . Il est le numéro d'immatriculation était F - BHIT quand il est venu au club . Je l'ai trouvé quelques photos de celui-ci sur votre site , que je suis ravi de trouver
Il semblerait que de nombreux habitants ont appris à voler dans son qui aurait plu à mon grand-oncle .
Savez-vous ce qui est arrivé à l'avion , ou si il ya plus de photos de celui-ci ?
Merci beaucoup pour votre aide

In English:
I am currently researching the history of an aircraft that my great uncle learned to fly in. It was England 1942.
I have managed to trace the Tiger Moth DH82 aircraft from military ownership to civilian ownership and then to the Aero-club de Guelma in Algeria. It's registration number was F-BHIT when it came to the club. I have found some photographs of it on your website, which I was thrilled to find:
It would appear that many locals learned to fly in her which would have pleased my great uncle.
Do you know what happened to the aircraft, or if there are more photographs of it?
Many thanks for your help.
Stephen Cooke

Bonjour,
Merci de faire suivre ce courrier à Stephen Cooke.
Hi Stephen,
De Havilland DH 82A Tiger Moth II F-BHIT cn 84230, ex T7861, ex G-ANHJ, was used by Aéro-club de Guelma from february 1957 til march 1961.
About 15 student pilots were rated pilots on this plane.
It seems that this Tiger Moth was destroyed on 1962 when Algeria acquiered independence.
Unfortunately, I have only these two photos joined to this message.
Cheers.
Pierre Jarrige.

Wow,
That's great. Thank you very much.
If you can find out what happened to the aircraft after independence that would be fantastic.
Many thanks for your efforts.
Best regards,
Stephen Cooke
