The Shuttleworth Collection near Biggleswade put on another fantastic display in their final evening air show of the season.
The perfect weather conditions allowed the Edwardian aircraft – the Bristol Boxkite and Avro Triplane – to soar over Old Warden, rounding off the show in brilliant fashion.
Among the highlights were the formation flying of the crowd-favourite Hawker Hurricane and Gloster Gladiator planes. An aerobatic display from the de Havilland Chipmunk also wowed the amassed spectators.
The collection’s ‘uncovered’ event before the air display was very popular – with aviation fans turning out to see aircraft up close, and chat to their pilots.
Plenty stayed behind after the flying too, taking advantage of the sunshine to watch the aircraft return to the hangars.
The Swiss Garden was also open for a free afternoon tour.
