Tangmere Military Aviation Museum Reopens

Tangmere Military Aviation Museum reopens its doors to the public on Wednesday 1 February after its annual two-monthly closure. During this ‘closed period’ our all-volunteer workforce has made a number of changes and improvements to the Museum’s exhibitions.

A major new exhibition has been curated by the Museum’s new Curator, Jason Riches, on Squadron Leader Neville Duke, Hawker’s Chief Test Pilot and 1953 World Airspeed Record holder. Neville was the Museum’s first Honorary President until his death in 2007. In addition to much of the Museum being repainted, the Museum’s simulators have all been upgraded including improved graphics on the ever popular Lightning cockpit simulator.

The Museum will this summer have a temporary exhibition on the important contribution Polish and Czech fighter pilots made to the Allied victory during the Second World War and to the history of RAF Tangmere. Also planned is a ‘Family Day’ with children’s activities throughout the day on Sunday 6 August. The Museum is also jointly running with the Southern Classics Society two joint classic vehicle shows to be held on the old airfield. The dates for these two shows are 9 April and 24 September.
