NEW AUDIO/VISUAL EXHIBIT OPENS

A new audio/visual exhibit featuring the Luftwaffe bombing raid on RAF Tangmere during the Battle of Britain on 16 August 1940 has recently opened at the Museum.

Located in the Museum’s Battle of Britain Hall, the exhibit, contained in a large cabinet, is centred on Tangmere’s sector operations room which has been recreated using the talents of one of the Museum’s artists, Jack Froelich, and local cabinet maker, Alan Smith, who kindly made and donated a miniature operations room plotting table. Volunteers Harry and Rita Bennett took on the challenge of making the WAAF plotters for the model and achieved an excellent result with RAF-uniformed Barbie dolls! The exhibit has an eight minute film synchronised with lights to describe the progress of the raid. This film and the audio/visual effects were designed and produced by volunteers Pete Pitman and Kieran Wisely.
