Preserving our exhibits is a full time, on-going task. Even when they are indoors the process must go on and this September the Museum is having the inside of its newest Hall, The Meryl Hansed Hall, sprayed with a water absorbent coating to further protect the Hunter Mk 5 and the F53 Lightning from the condensation that can build up in the winter months.
This has been made possible by the generosity of Grafo Products Limited who undertook this work free of all charges. Our thanks to them.
Both aircraft were donated to the Museum by Raymond and the late Meryl Hansed, in whose honour the Hall is named. Our picture shows these two fine aircraft shrouded to protect them during the spraying.
