Royal Aircraft Factory S.E.5a (Original) by Daniel-Wales-Images Royal Aircraft Factory S.E.5a (Original) by Daniel-Wales-Images
One of just two original S.E.5s flying in the world today, this wonderful machine belongs to the Shuttleworth Collection based at Old Warden in Bedfordshire. It was recently discovered that she is likely to be a combat veteran with several kills to her name. 

The second original S.E.5 that flies today belongs to Air Leasing at Sywell Aerodrome in Northamptonshire and is in fact an American built Eberhart S.E.5e. One with considerable history too as she is thought to have been flown by both Charles Lindbergh and Chuck Yeagar. I am hoping that she will be on the circuit in 2017 and hope even more that she can join Shuttleworth's example in the air together at some point.

Though Shuttleworth's example is the last original example of the S.E.5a flyable today, there are a number of faithful reproductions down in New Zealand too.
