The Shuttleworth Collection – 27

First, an apology. I tried something different last week – a slideshow of images from my visit to Ickworth House.ICKWORTH HOUSE – 26 I think some people had trouble seeing the images – they weren’t always visible in email handlers, the blog needs to be opened in a browser window – click on Pixels and Pronouns in the header line and this should happen.I’ve edited it back into my usual look! Sorry about that.

This week, more in my old style and set-up!!

Yesterday, Sunday 7th July, I went to the Shuttleworth Collection near Biggleswade, for their Military Aircraft airshow .

Here are some shots of some of the aircraft on display – flying and/or on the ground.

The highlight of the day? Easily, seven Hawker Hurricanes flying together. Only eight of these beautiful aircraft flying in the UK, and Shuttleworth managed to get SEVEN of them together – the highest number to fly together since 1946!!.
