Blenheim [12 photos]
WWII light bomber. Initially designed as an executive transport aircraft carrying 6 passengers plus a pilot and designated Type 142. With retractable undercarriage and stressed skin it was capable of 240mph, outperforming all of the fighters in service with the RAF in 1935. The design was modified to operate as a bomber for the RAF.

Boxkite [9 photos]
This is a replica of a Bristol Boxkite now owned and flown by the Shuttleworth Collection. Originally this example was built for the film 'Those Magnificent Men in Their Flying Machines'. In the air it is a most impressive sight, but it is flown only in conditions of almost complete calm. The design was originated in 1909 by Henry Farman, an Englishman who lived in France, and was much copied and, in Britain, the result was the Bristol Boxkite. Although essentially civil in origin, the boxkite had a clear military potential and in March 1911 four examples were ordered by the War Office. Boxkites were used in many parts of the world, including Australia and India; they were the first British aircraft to be ordered for export. Although very successful, the type was cumbersome and had a relatively short life, with the last specimen flying in Australia late in 1915.

Hurricane [127 photos]
Single-seat fighter, later fighter-bomber. Renowned for its role in Battle of Britain. The Hawker Hurricane was the first of the British monoplane fighters, progressively replacing Gloster Gauntlets and Gladiators from December 1937. By the outbreak of World War II in 1939, eighteen RAF squadrons were equipped with Hurricanes, compared with nine that used Spitfires. This two-to-one ratio applied through the Battle of Britain in the summer of 1940, in which Hurricanes shot down more enemy aircraft than all other defences - air and ground - combined.

Sadly very few survive today due to an order from the Czechoslovakian airworthiness authority ordering all 200 Lunaks to be destroyed in 1952 after one broke up doing aerobatics.

Cub J3C [14 photos]
Based on the Taylor Cub. In its first full year of production 737 were produced.

J-5A Cub Cruiser [1 photos]

Cub L4 Grasshopper [50 photos]
Based on the Cub J3 the L4 (affectionately known as the Grasshopper) was produced for the US Army. It had better accomodation for the pilot and passenger along with better all round visibility. The construction is of welded steel tube fuselage with a two spar wooden wing covered by fabric, the wing also braced by V struts. The undercarriage is bungee sprung.

After the 2nd World War many were left in the field and used by many European countries to restart civil flying clubs and flying schools. They made very good training aircraft and recreational flying machines. Many have survied to this day and are much loved by their owners, due to the easy handling and maintenance.


PA 18 Super Cub [141 photos]
The super Cub was developed from the earlier Cubs such as the J3 and L4.

Initial versions were powered by 90hp (67kw) continental C90-12F and 108hp (80.5kw) Avco Lycoming 0.235 engine. These early versions arrived on the scene in 1948.

Early versions are known as PA-18-95 and PA-18-108. These are identified by a cowled in engine. It wasn’t until later that they were fitted with flaps.

The Super Cub has continued to get more power and the Avco Lycoming 0-290-D2 of 135 hp (101kw) engine was fitted and some had flaps fitted which really brought it very good short field performance. Later the power plant became the Avco Lycoming 150 hp engine.

S1 [4 photos]
First flew with a 55 hp hycoming 0-145. Later flew with a 90 hp Flanklin. One of the most famous Pitts S1 was built by Curtis Pitts for Betty skelton called the Little Stinker. Early Pitts and most homebuilts where nicknamed Flatwings due to their flat bottom wings and only had ailerons on bottom wing. These were later called S1c and S1Ds. Early factory built S1S had semi symmetrical airfoil and a beefed up fuselage to take 180 hp Lycoming. Early ailerons were friese type which on later models gave way to symmetrical type which later had balanced tab type.
