Shuttleworth Engineering Shed Walkaround (Various).

Recommended Posts

Merry Christmas Everyone.

I went for a ride to Shuttleworth (Old Warden airfield), my favourite place on the planet yesterday.  I love this place, really old school place and so many vintage aircraft you turn round so fast your head almost comes off.  
Im lucky enough to know a few of the engineers here and some of the volunteers as I fly in here quite a lot in my little toy airplane (they're nice to me even though its not vintage).

 

So whilst walking around I took a few photographs in the Engineering shed of the Lysander, Brisfit and a Chipmunk thats being renovated.  AR501 the Spitfire is getting there too and looking great. Peter Vacher's old Hurricane (R4118 the only flying Hurricane that actually fought in the Battle of Britain).  Pete just sold her and she is going to live at Shuttleworth for now and may be a permanent fixture with Shuttleworths own Sea Hurricane.  

The Gloster Gladiator was out doing a few engine runs and I took some of the lovely Ryan thats in one of the hangars too.  

 

I took tonnes of photo's and this isnt the whole set so can upload more if people ask for them.

Shuttleworth really is a living museum and all the better for it.  If you havent been do, its beats Duxford hands down in my book and is full of vintage aircraft, some of them the only flying examples in the world.  Great place.  Full details at: http://www.shuttleworth.org/
