The Trustees of the Shuttleworth Collection at Old Warden are delighted to announce their latest acquisition (see photo above.)

This rare aircraft will take its place in their collection of historic pioneer aviation designs whose significance might otherwise remain unrecognised.

It can also serve eight different kinds of coffee.

A member of the Cabinet, demonstrating Unity of Purpose: "Hope you chaps and chappesses don't mind, but I've ordered a couple of hundred of these, just to help the Brexit negotiations along, y'know."

The consequences of spilling vodka on the engineering drawings of the MiG-B-52 soon became apparent.

We bought the design drawings from a business called "Photoshop". Funny name for an aircraft design bureau though.
