Shuttleworth Edwardian Pageant



For the sixth time this season, the weather gods looked down favourably on mid-Bedfordshire for a Shuttleworth Collection display day, the capacity crowd being treated to another utterly absorbing show which saw what must be a record-breaking total of 45.4 aircraft displaying over Old Warden.

Shuttleworth’s increased use of ground displays to augment the airborne action breathed life, quite literally, into the Edwardian theme. Visiting acts included a steam-powered Stanley Model Z 12-seater bus, which first appeared in 1909, a horse-drawn Shand Mason singlecylinder steam fire engine, and a contingent from the Veteran Cycle Club. The period costume opportunities, first seen at the Goodwood Revival, are also beginning to add welcome extra colour at Old Warden.
