Poor Weather – But Good For Us!

Most people would agree that the weather in the South of England this August has not been ‘beach weather’. So though the beaches may have suffered from reduced visitor numbers we have enjoyed record attendances as families come to enjoy the many delights that Tangmere Military Aviation Museum has to offer. Our flight simulators and Hunter cockpit have rarely been busier!

The Museum’s new Touch Screen displays are also proving popular and a new exhibit, a genuine Tangmere WW2 bomb shelter, is nearing completion – watch this space for more news on this shortly.
