Open Day 2009

Under blue skies the Museum’s annual Open Day was held on Sunday March 15th. Well over 800 people attended and more than £1000 was raised for our sponsored charity, Help for Heroes.

Among the many new attractions for 2009 the model jet engine, which was run on four separate occasions during the day, and the beautiful scale model Mustang drew much attention. So too did the exhibition by the Vulcan to the Sky team who gave a fine DVD presentation and talk in the Neville Duke Hall. Among their number was a Vulcan pilot giving the public chances to ask their own questions about what this magnificent aircraft was like to fly.

As ever the flight simulators proved enduringly popular and we lost count of how many people sat in the Hunter cockpit in the Museum’s Merston Hall.

Two Ferret armoured vehicles were on display in the car park and these too attracted much attention, but it was the Museum’s collection of priceless aircraft and artefacts that drew the most questions and comments on the day.
