So there's still time to visit or get those aviation bargains from the Museum...

Re: Lynx HC.28 moves to Newark

It is indeed quite rare, but it fills a gap in the collection that we have been looking to close for a while. There's also some synergy in the spare parts sourcing for the three helicopter projects that have arrived this year - still lots to do, but the Puma and Chinook have already come on quite a ...

Re: Vulcan Upside down!!

Re: First visit

It's not a problem from my perspective, I believe that you must always look to improve and develop. At the museum we have a mix of display contributors. Some displays are compiled by the museum's curator; others come from keen museum volunteers; whilst some others were university projects and some w...

Re: Museum Shop

Thanks to the generosity of a long-standing museum supporter we have just benefitted from a major donation of aviation books and Corgi Aviation Archive diecast aircraft. These pre-owned items are now on sale in the Museum Shop and we thought the diecasts were worthy of listing; details in here!

Re: Museum Shop

We’ve had a busy day sorting out a new delivery of Revell plastic aircraft kits; too many to list here, but information has been loaded onto the museum website, in here!

Tomorrow we’ll be adding a similar update for the current stock of Corgi Collectables.
