Lightning Simulator

The Museum’s new Lightning Simulator was formally opened by Air Chief Marshal Sir William Wratten GBE CB AFC FRAeS CIMgt on the morning of Thursday, 22nd July. After appropriate briefing by the simulator project team, Sir William ‘flew’ a representative sortie and thereafter unveiled a plaque marking the occasion. Clearly impressed by the realism of the facility he returned for a second sortie during the afternoon.

The terms of reference for simulator use by members of the public are currently under review and the training of instructors is about to commence. Further details will be promulgated as and when they occur, although it is unlikely that we shall be ready for general visitor use before October this year.
