One of the great aircraft and car collections of the world, which is famous for its regular flying displays. The Shuttleworth Collection was established in memory of Richard Shuttleworth, who died in an air crash in 1940, at the age of 31. Richard Shuttleworth was an accomplished pilot and racing driver. He learnt to fly in the early 1930s, and in 1933 flew a single seater aircraft 6,000 miles from Old Warden to Delhi in twelve days. The veteran vehicles of all shapes and sizes are capable of being driven and ridden, and take part in parades at many of our main events, some can even be seen participating at other venues like Brooklands or in the historic London to Brighton Run! All of these vehicles have living histories and stories that Shuttleworth is safeguarding for the future. So when you look around at these vehicles today, it’s because of skilled and passionate engineers, volunteers, drivers, and riders they will all continue to drive and be ridden for future generations.
