G-ACBB was first registered to the Bristol Aeroplane Company (who operated the Filton Reserve School under contact to the Air Ministry) on 30/12/1932. This aircraft was written off when it collided in mid air with another Tiger Moth, G-ACBE, also of the Filton Reserve School, over Yate, Gloucestershire (12 miles north-east of Bristol). Both crews of both aircraft (four people in all) were killed.
