ACTIVITIES DURING THE MUSEUM’S CLOSED PERIOD

During the two months the Museum has been closed to the public, our dedicated volunteers have not been idle.  Work has centred on refurbishing and repainting areas of the Museum and the creation of a new audio/visual exhibit on the bombing of RAF Tangmere during the Battle of Britain on 16 August 1940. Our popular Lightning cockpit simulator has been upgraded with new software and hardware and the Canberra B2 cockpit has been fitted with a sound recording of intercom and radio transmissions between the crew and air traffic control.

Other work undertaken includes the re-engineering of the children’s Spitfire combat simulator to make it more robust and refurbishment of the Hunter F4 cockpit. Preparatory work has been completed in the Tangmere Hall ready for the installation of a new touch-screen on Bomber Command later this year.

We look forward to opening the Museum for the 2013 season on Friday, 1st February 2013.
