The skies over Woburn will be filled with the spectacular sights of some of the world’s most prized aircraft this weekend.

The annual arrival of Tiger Moths is set to take place on Saturday, August 16 and Sunday, August 17.

The parklands around Woburn Abbey will be transformed from a grassy area grazed by the famous deer into a fully functional airfield to allow the 29th International Moth Rally to take place.

There are more than 130 aircraft booked in for the weekend, and more than 100 vintage cars will be on show.

The crowds of visitors will welcome in the world’s oldest airworthy DH.60 Moth G-EBLV (1925)

There will be two extra special visitors on the Sunday afternoon.

For the first time in many years the world’s only two airworthy Lancaster bombers will be flying in formation over the event site.

Apart from the incredible sound and sight of the two aircraft, it’s also a tribute to the Tiger Moth as virtually every Lancaster pilot would have learned to fly on the Tiger.

On the gate ticket prices are £10 per adult on Saturday and £15 per adult on Sunday. Children under 16 accompanied by an adult are free of charge.
