1924 Hawker Cygnet

The Collection’s exhibit

This aeroplane is a replica, built by the late Don Cashmore in 1993 and registered G-CAMM in honour of the original designer. It is powered by a modern 37hp Mosler flat twin engine, but otherwise is built to the original specifications.

Despite its frail appearance it performs well, even in winds which keep other early lightweight designs firmly on the ground.

Ownership of the aircraft transferred to the Shuttleworth Collection in early 2009.
