I think sometimes people forget how unique these aircraft are and how we assume they will always work every time.

Just the quick private views of one of the volunteers at the show and in no way an official statement from any of the groups.

Thanks for the update on the Stieglitz, I've confirmed that it was Peter's old Bestmann that was lost in the 2011 accident. We've now updated the review to reflect this.

From the report....."Formerly the Shuttleworth Pageant, now rebranded as the 'Heritage Airshow', the September event at Old Warden is traditionally a showcase of the Collection aircraft, with an ethos of emptying the hangars as much as possible and flying as many of their machines as is feasible. ……… was therefore somewhat unfortunate that there were a number of notable casualties from the provisional line-up, including the Anson, Demon, Rapide, Dove and Mew Gull."



Hi,

As I understand, the list of 5 aircraft mentioned above only includes a single 'Collection' aircraft (The Mew Gull) - the others, AFAIK, are all privately owned, and just based at Old Warden, and I wouldn't expect to see them in a 'Shuttleworth-feature' event.

Cheers,

Hi Alisdair, the original participant list released by the Collection had all five of the aircraft down to participate, unfortunately, we understand four suffered technical issues and the Mew Gull went to the LAA Rally at Sywell.
