G-AMSV Returns to Coventry

Baginton Air Pageant
The initial details for the Baginton Air Pageant are up on the website! As we don't have the space for a full-on air show attracting 20,000 or so people, we're aiming for low-key, themed days like this. A couple of thousand people,...

To Clip Their Wings Would Be a Crime
Here they are: the winged masterpieces it's our privilege to care for. More than thirty of them. They're not museum pieces, standing polished, preserved but dead, behind rope barriers. They're alive and moving.

And it's thanks to you we can keep doing it.
Aircraft For Sale
With our founder, Mike Collett, considering his retirement, we are now offering several aircraft from our collection for sale.

The important consideration is that these precious aircraft must be flown regularly and accessible as important historic items to the British public.
If you have a genuine interest in owning and flying the aircraft detailed below then please click here to e-mail Sue Hawkins and Ben Cox.
