50 Glorious Years

The early September show this year celebrated the 50th Anniversary of the Shuttleworth Collection opening to the public for the first time.
Rather than wax lyrical with the history with this wonderful collection, I’ll just get on with the photos.

Over the years, nothing would have happened at Old Warden without the small army of staff and volunteers who turn up once every two weeks in the summer months and make the show happen.

The Sea Hurricane has been de-Pigeoned after its unfortunate collision at the last show. A lot of hard work by the Collection’s engineering staff meant that she was on the flightline ready for the show. The patch still needs a little paint, but shes airworthy and proudly wears a kill marking.
