Re: Shuttleworth Collection evening flying display

A fascinating and excellent set of images Walti. It looks like a brilliant event and it seems so incongruous seeing those primitive aircraft performing so well in front of your modern camera. A great post.

Re: Shuttleworth Collection evening flying display

The DH Comet is interesting!

I served my apprenticeship with De-Havillands. They had a showroom at their Leavesden factory (now Warners Film Studios). Hanging from the ceiling of the showroom was the Comet. I guess it had been there for years. Nice to see it's in the air again. I wonder how much the restoration cost?

The odd thing is that I can find no online reference to it ever being at Leavesden, yet I have a clear image of it hanging over the conference table in the showroom!

I can't remember if its a 1906 or 1909 plane, either way it's over 100 years old.... One viewer was singularly unimpressed by the flight, to which his wife (one assumes) said "when you're over a hundred I bet you couldn't even walk it!"
Apologies, I've misled you all! This wasn't the 1909 Bleriot, (the worlds oldest flying plane etc...) this was the 1910 Deperdussin! - still over 100 years old, so still very impressive!

Re: Shuttleworth Collection evening flying display

It looks like you had a great day & you're excused for taking lots of photos & thanks for sharing these impressive sets of them.
