Douglas Bader Remembered

Our main event of 2011, Douglas Bader Remembered, was an unqualified success. The occasion attracted over 1,000 members of the public and there appeared to be a general feeling amongst regular visitors that it was the best annual themed day they had attended at the Museum. On offer were displays of vintage vehicles and re-enactment tableaux, various stalls, short helicopter trips and “rides” in aircraft cockpits and our flight simulators. The Douglas Bader Foundation’s ‘Bader Braves’ (a charity for handicapped children) was represented and fourteen Second World War bomber aircrew veterans were on hand to sign books and aircraft prints in support of the Bomber Command Memorial Fund (picture opposite). Meanwhile, the ambience of the occasion was enhanced by evocative contemporary music courtesy of Angel Radio. Although the capricious English summer weather sadly forced the cancellation of the planned display by two Spitfires of the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight, warbird pilot Dieter Sinanan treated us to an excellent display in a vintage Harvard.
