The Shuttleworth Collection Military Pageant 2013

At long last a sunny airshow at Shuttleworth. It was too windy for the Edwardians and the World War 1 aircraft, but the rest of the display more than made up for that.
It begins, as ever, early in the morning….

While everyone concentrated on putting a nut in the engine (no its not the nut on the top of the step) the real nut was standing alongside.

The proceedings begin as ever with the historic vehicles (and drivers)
