The Shuttleworth Collection - A Celebration of Flight
The Shuttleworth Collection was founded in 1928 by Richard Ormonde Shuttleworth. It is in a quiet countryside setting, actually on an old fashioned all grass aerodrome with eight hangars. These hangars comprise an aeroplane engineering workshop, a garage and coachroom, and the remainder house the world famous collection of over 50 aircraft.
A number of vehicles, motorcycles and bicycles can also be viewed around the collection and in the hangar 7 extension.
The Collection of Historic vehicles and aeroplanes is unique in that everything is kept in working condition and are demonstrated at events throughout the year.

Great War Aviation Seminar

  • 15 November 2014 9am-5pm

When the Great War broke out in August 1914, aviation was still relatively new and the military saw the flying machine purely as another reconnaissance platform. By Christmas some of the first aircraft in France had carried out the first bombing raids and a new age of aviation had been born.

The seminar will look at how aviation developed during the war and how the Royal Flying Corps developed in the early part of the war. Two historians will deliver talks and guests have a chance of viewing airworthy WW1 aircraft close up with pilots who fly them today in air displays at Old Warden.

Suitable for

  • 18+
  • 16-17

Admission

£37.00 per adult, £32.00 for SVAS (SVAS must call in to book as we cannot validate the discounted price online).
