Old Warden in Bedfordshire is home to the Shuttleworth collection.This
collection spans from the early pioneering aircraft up to World War II. Some
of the early aircraft include the Bleriot type XI which is identical to the one
which first crossed the English channel in 1909, and the Bristol Boxkite which
was built for the film "Those magnificent men in their flying machines".
The collection also includes World War I aircraft such as the Avro 504k,
Sopwith Pup,Bristol F.2b and S.E.5a. Later aircraft include the D.H. Tiger
Moth, Avro tutor, Gloster Gladiator, Hawker Hurricane, and Supermarine Spitfire.
During an airshow, warbirds and even
modern military aircraft are flown in to supplement the collection.
This venue offers an excellent opportunity to take some good photographs because of its
small size and the aircraft flying close to the crowdline.
Old Warden has several airshows throughout the summer and is well worth a visit.
