It was all about dressing to impress at the Shuttleworth Collection on Sunday for an Edwardian Pageant to remember at the Old Warden Aerodrome.

Despite the gusty wind there were flying displays from vehicles such as the twin Hurricanes, the Tiger9 Formation Team and the Comet.

There was plenty of entertainment on the ground as well, with an Edwardian horse-drawn fire engine proving to be a star attraction.

A spokesman for The Collection said: “Thank you to all our visitors and volunteers for sharing a sunny Sunday with us, it was nice to see both Hurricanes in the air.”

Next up at the Collection is the 19th edition of the Flying Proms on Saturday, August 20.
