  • Description

    Woburn Abbey, Bedfordshire.

    L/S of a biplane slowly descending. Cut to a different angle shot of the same plane still descending. Several shots of the biplanes flying. M/S of a biplane on the field. Cut to a man directing the planes by using little flags. M/S of a lovely blue plane on the field. C/U shot of the sign on one of the planes reads "Tiger Club" and has a tiger with butterfly wings drawn on it - sweet.

    Long panning shot of the airfield. Lots of little planes can be seen everywhere. Voiceover claims that this is the largest gathering of private planes ever held. It is organised by Royal Aero Club and more then a hundred vintage and modern planes are here. Duke of Bedford, whose grandmother learned to fly when she was 61 years old, has arranged with the Royal Aero Club to invite owners of light aircraft to Woburn.

    Several shots of different aeroplanes in the air and across the field. Two teenage boys record the movement of the planes. Voiceover talks about the advantages and future of the light aircraft industry and transport. M/S of a lovely red plane as it lands.

British Pathe captured many extraordinary events on film over its 80 year history but sometimes the cameras were switched on when tragedy struck.
