Preserving and restoring aviation’s historic aircrafts
The Shuttleworth Collection was founded by Richard Ormonde Shuttleworth in 1928. A racing driver, aviator and avid collector of cars and aircraft, Shuttleworth established one of the most esteemed collections in the world, housing a variety of well-preserved vintage aviation vehicles. Today, a staff of voluntary engineers work full-time to preserve and restore the Shuttleworth Collection – situated in Bedfordshire – with an emphasis on maintaining the flying condition of its aircraft. Thanks to them, enthusiasts are able to see some of the last surviving models in the world take to the skies! Expect to see notable aircraft from the Edwardian era, including the Bleriot XI, which is the oldest British plane still able to fly, weather permitting of course! Still with its original engine, the craft dates back to the early 1900s. You can also see The Moth, Shuttleworth’s own private plane, which flies regularly during air displays. Privately owned yet housed at the collection are a Miles M14a Hawk Trainer, a Westland Wallace and a De Havilland DH89A Rapide. It’s an airplane enthusiasts paradise and a hugely fun day out, so pick up Shuttleworth Airshow tickets via StubHub, they’re available to buy or sell now!
It’s more than an air show, it’s a vintage extravaganza!
Aside from its air display, the Shuttleworth Airshow offers a range of entertainment a little closer to the ground. Browse the artisan crafts at the vintage village, where you’ll find vintage and retro menswear, models and books related to aircraft and vintage homeware, watches and jewellery. Grab a bite to eat at the variety of food stalls dotted about the site and pick out your favourite steam punk outfit of the passers-by who relish any opportunity to get dressed up. Throughout the day, there’s also music from a fabulous vintage entertainer singing the songs of yesteryear. If you really want to go all out, Shuttleworth offers limited experience flights in a Harvard T6, but it’s not for the faint hearted!
