What is inside the Shuttleworth Collection?
The Collection opened to the public in 1963, with further aircraft and vehicles added over the years. Events that encompass flying displays and vehicle parades draw crowds from all over the world. The Collection’s aircraft and vehicles, as much as possible, are all kept working as intended – it’s where history flies and drives!
The Shuttleworth Collection is a registered charity, self-funded through daily admission and airshows ticket sales.
- Vintage aircraft: 1909-1950s (view the aircraft gallery)
