While any First World War flying was out of the question due to the wind conditions at the Shuttleworth Collection’s Edwardian pageant, the Collection were able to put together an incredible display of Sopwith Scouts inside one of the hangars. This saw six individual types outlining the full development of the Sopwith Scout during the First World War (Aside from the Strutter and Dolphin). Rather than fill up my review of that show with the countless photos such a unique display deserved, I decided to put this post together in order to give the full picture of the detail and variety on show.

Wow, quite similar to a TVAL Hangar visit in terms of access! Excellent!
And a wonderful progression.
