Softly (though probably not quietly) into the night.

Wow, it looks like it might even be pretty fast with that sleek fuselage! It looks like an arrow or a dart!

Those old planes has something in them - it really needed magnificent men to fly those things... and I bet many of them would be uncomfortable in the modern airplane, with all its comfort...

This particular plane was one of the few original aircraft to appear in Those Magnificent Men in Their Flying Machines. It was 'flown' by the Scottish aviator. Most of the other planes were replicas.

The Shuttleworth Collection also own two of the replicas that were built for the film too, the Avro Triplane and Bristol Boxkite. I am a regular visitor to Old Warden so I see them quite frequently. Replicas or not they are always fantastic to see.

Wheeler's book Building Aeroplanes for those MAgnificent Men is well worth reading about those replicas.
