Return of the Mew Gull – Shuttleworth Seasons end.
It was the final display of the Shuttleworth display season, early on a beautiful sunny morning appearing from a cloudless sky, the Mew Gull arrived home.
77 Years after its first flight, and after many successful years flying from Breighton, the Mew Gull G-AEXF has been bought by the Shuttleworth Collection and will be based at Old Warden. A perfect partner for dH Comet G-ACSS, the weather couldnt have been better as it flew a couple of circuits before executing a perfect landing in front of its welcoming committee. I cant think of a better place for it to be.
And then another “race” this time between and Edwardian aircraft and an Edwardian motorcycle. the Aurora flew down the flightline as the Avro Triplane flew overhead. An amazing sight and one that can only be seen at Shuttleworth
A very big thank you has to go to the staff and volunteers of the Shuttleworth Collection for putting on a superb airshow season, and for putting up with me shoving a camera in their faces all year. Despite all the obstacles that were thrown in their way it was a memorable season.
