Tangmere 39

The Museum’s main Special Event this year is to be called Tangmere 39 and will mark the 70th anniversary of the outbreak of WW2. It will be held on Sunday, July 19th, opening at 10am, and promises to be a great day out.

Star billing in the biggest flying display we have ever put on will be a Battle of Britain Flight Hurricane to represent the type of RAF fighter aircraft stationed at Tangmere in September ’39 when war broke out. There will also be flying displays by a Tiger Moth, one of the main basic training types during WW2, a Harvard advanced trainer and a Chipmunk.

Other attractions on the day will include an art exhibition, open cockpits so that visitors can sit in some of the Museum’s aircraft, various stalls, live ’30s and ’40s music from Play it again Sam, cars of the period, flight simulators and all the Museum’s normal attractions.

Tickets for our richest ever Grand Prize Draw will be on sale throughout the day. First prize is a ride in the Harvard, there are two prizes of a half hour trial flying lesson at the Goodwood Flying School, a chance to drive three laps of the Goodwood racing circuit in an Aston Martin DB4, a framed Spitfire print signed by WW2 fighter pilot and author Geoffrey Wellum, theatre tickets, models and other prizes. Tickets for this magnificent draw are £1 each and are on sale now at the Museum. The prize drawing will take place at Tangmere 39.
