  23rd International Moth Rally - Woburn Abbey, Bedfordshire 16/17th August 2003

Review - The picturesque surroundings of Woburn abbey played host to the de Havilland Moth Club’s 23rd International Moth Rally, held on the weekend of 16th-17th August, which for 2003, celebrated the centenary of the birth of Amy Johnson.  At 27 years old, and with 100 hours flying time to her credit, Amy became the first woman to fly solo from England to Australia in her DH60 Gipsy Moth G-AAAH ‘Jason’.  A plethora of superb ‘Mothery’ was in attendance, a grand total of 99 aircraft appearing on the Sunday.

Highlights included the first public outing since restoration for the Norman Aeroplane Trust's immaculate D.H.84 Dragon G-ECAN.
