Talk: Flying The Collection’s aircraft

Saturday 25 February


In a joint initiative with Youth & Education Support (YES), Shuttleworth’s Chief Pilot Dodge Bailey will give his perspective on the challenges and pleasures of flying aircraft from The Collection as diverse as the 1912 Blackburn Monoplane (the oldest British aircraft still flying) to the race winning twin engine 1934 DH88 Comet. The talk includes a tour of The Collection.
