Tiger Moth Rally to celebrate a century of DH design

In addition to club members’ Tiger Moth biplanes, a diverse range of aircraft from the drawing board of Sir Geoffrey de Havilland will celebrate 100 years of his work at the de Havilland Moth Club International Tiger Moth Rally, at Woburn Abbey on 17th and 18th August 2013.

The oldest design set to fly in to the specially prepared grass air strip in the Deer Park at Woburn will be a replica Royal Aircraft Factory BE-2 observation biplane, a type which entered service 100 years ago.

In addition to delighting aviation enthusiasts, the event is set to be a mecca for vintage and classic car fans. The gathering will offer very ‘Best of British’ with some of the country’s top vintage cars and vintage aeroplanes showing off their style in a unique Garden Party environment. The event will also allow a special ‘get up close hour’ each day, when all enthusiasts can take photographs and meet pilots. There will be club flying competitions on Saturday and an air display on Sunday afternoon.

Ticket prices ‘on the day’ cost £10 per person on Saturday, £15 Sunday; with accompanied under-16s admitted free. Discounted prices are available for advance tickets bought via the internet. Additional details of all ticket prices and VIP ‘Club Enclosure’ hospitality, along with further news of this great event can be found at www.mothsatwoburn.co.uk
