    Shuttleworth Airshow: Race Day

    We did! Great day out and the weather was brilliant, So much so in fact that the earliest airworthy aircraft in the collection were able to fly. Namely, the Bristol Boxkite (a replica but still dates back to 1924!), the 103 year old Bristol Monoplane (the oldest airworthy British-built aircraft in the world) and the 108 year old Depardussin! (And those two are the genuine articles). Add to that, Spits (PRXI and Vc), TF-51 and Sea Hurricane, a host of civilian air racing types including the DH.88 Comet 'Grosvenor House' and the Travel Air Mystery Ship plus loads of cool cars and bikes. Thanks to Chris, Sarah and her parents for being great company for the day. One or two photos to follow.
  2. So here it is, the official end of the 2018 airshow season in the UK and while it may not have 19 Spitfires, this one is still pretty special, particularly as it marks Peter Teichman's final public air display as he steps down as chief pilot at the Hangar 11 Collection. With emphasis on Air Racing and civilian aircraft, the show line up looks like this; North American TF-51D Mustang Spitfire PL983 ‘L’ Spartan Executive LeVier Cosmic Wind Taylor Titch Midget Mustang Druine D.31 Turbulent Miles Messenger Kings cup winning Bulldog Pitts: x6 Slingsby T.13 Petrel Slingsby Falcon glider Grob Viking T1 Aviat Husky Mew Gull: G-HEKL Travel Air Type R Mystery Ship Comper Swift: G-LCGL Comper Swift: G-ECTF Chilton: G-JUJU Chilton: G-DWCB (static) Blackburn B2 Miles Hawk Speed Six DH60X Moth Southern Martlet Hawker Sea Hurricane 1B DH60 Cirrus Moth DH82a Tiger Moth Miles Magister DHC Chipmunk T.22 DH88 Comet Percival Mew Gull Comper Swift Sopwith Camel Avro 504K Sopwith Dove Bristol M1C Supermarine Spitfire Mk Vc Desoutter I Bristol Boxkite Blackburn Monoplane Type ‘D’ Deperdussin In addition to the planes, the following cars and bikes are also taking part; Berliet/Curtiss 2 seat racing Riley 12/4 special Morgan Super sports Austin Ten Railton LST Special Austin Seven Frazer Nash TT Rep Austin 7 Blackburne Mors Curtiss Austin 7 Works Racer Delage Type X coupe Del L’Auto MG 18/80 MK1 Speed model Talbot 90 Brooklands Rep Pope Toledo Gordon Bennett Racer Austin 7 Pearl Vauxhall 30-98 Crossley 20 hp Works competition car Austin 12/6 MG J Type Ford T ‘Rajo’ Swift Anzani special Vauxhall 16-20 A Type Riley TT Sprite Austin 7 Nippy Wolseley Hornet special Studebaker Light Six BSA 3 Wheeler Sunbeam Tourist trophy Sunbeam 16/20 sports Austin 7 Ulster Fiat 5015 Wolseley 16/20 Austin 7 Single Seat Rolls Royce 20 HP Austin Ten Lichfield Saloon Lea-Francis 14hp Estate Austin 7 opal Aston Martin 2 litre speed model Standard 9 Deluxe Wolseley 14/60 Singer nine Lemans Sports Morris Oxford Tourer Lea Francis P Type 12/40 Chevrolet Series K Tourer Morris Eight (series 1) Morris Minor Morris Eight (pre series) MG PA Rolls Royce 20 HP Chevrolet AB Tourer Morgan Super aero ben hicks special BSA S23 500cc sport E.S Lightweight motorcycle AJW Flying Fox Triumph CSD x2 Sunbeam 9 Brooklands Douglas Bayley/Cole sprinter Scott, Flying Squirrel Rex acme TT 350 Sunbeam Longstroke 250cc BSA S26 4.93 Raleigh MH30 Norton 18 500cc Bradbury 3 speed v twin BSA Empire star Sunbeam Model 9 Douglas 2 3/4 Raleigh Mago Royal Enfield 200 With good weather forecast, this should be excellent!

    Very nice Arthur. It's been a great Summer. As Blubear and I are off to the last airshow of the season at the Shuttleworth Collection tomorrow, it looks very much like Autumn is upon us. Hopefully we can squeeze in one more fine day before the cold weather sets in!

    Fen assures me that eventually it will 'click' and then everything becomes more straight-forward. Personally I have my doubts. Perhaps I should have another run at it.
  6. Sheesh, everyone's a frickin' critic.
  7. I have read the forums...and as my training course on Wednesday has been moved to Thursday, I will endeavour to be there on Tuesday. PS. Low-key announcement added to the forum

    MS Sidewinder2

    If you're offloading the G940 Arthur, I'd be interested in taking it off your hands - My two Sidewinders are in good order but a spare or two is sensible.
  11. As it turned out it was 9pm before I got home, so it's just as well we didn't make any arrangements! lol And Marc will be home for Christmas before you know it.
  12. Bugger - I probably won't be back in Cov until about 7pm so it looks like our tracks won't cross tomorrow. I hope it goes well for you all tomorrow and that Mark has a great time at Uni here in Coventry - and that Mr & Mrs P don't go getting all emotional.

    Henning Wehn is another one worth looking up. He appears regularly on the "News Quiz" and the "Unbelievable Truth" radio programmes here in the UK

    Milton Jones & Tim Vine are both great - not aware of Stewart Francis though - will have to look him up.
