The Boxkite at the Shuttleworth Collection (www.shuttleworth.org Bedfordshire, UK) is a replica built in 1964 for the film Those Magnificent Men in their Flying Machines. It is fitted with a 90 hp Lycoming rather than the original 50 hp Gnôme. No original Boxkite exists.The Shuttleworth Boxkite now rarely makes more than a low hop down the grass runway in perfect conditions.
