Bond Day: Auto Gyro Fly-in and Aston Martin Car Show

In cooperation with The British Rotorcraft Association,and Wallis Heritage Limited, Shuttleworth is delighted to announce on Saturday 25 September we will be celebrating “BOND DAY”. The visitor attraction and airfield will be the venue for the celebration of Ian Fleming’s 007.

This action-packed day has all things BOND – from amazing displays of Aston Martins to a wonderful autogyro fly-in.  “Little Nellie” Q’s single-seat autogyro will take pride of place outside the Hangars and many other highlights are to be announced.

If you are a Petrol Head, Bond Fan, have aviation interests, have an interest in the late Wing Commander Ken Wallis (Creator of “Little Nellie” and Sean Connery’s pilot double in the film), or just want a fabulous day out in the glorious Bedfordshire countryside, then this promises to tick all those boxes. Listen out for music from all the James Bond films. Plus lookout for a model flying from around 13.00.

Explore almost 60 acres of Shuttleworth, including the famous Shuttleworth Collection, the beautiful Swiss Garden & the historic Lakeside Parkland with views of Shuttleworth House plus the children’s playground. Shuttleworth gift shop and Runway Cafe. 

An action packed fun day out for all!
