We’re Back !

The Museum reopened on February 1st after its usual Winter Shutdown period. Though closed to the public during December and January the Shutdown has been an extremely busy time for the teams of Volunteers who have worked hard throughout the period in a coordinated plan of improvement, change and refurbishment for 2009. Among the many changes are:

  • A completely refitted library
  • New touch-screen displays
  • A refurbished ‘Nicholson’ exhibit
  • A revised RAF Tangmere exhibit
  • More display boards
  • A new Vampire T11 under restoration

Further maintenance work on the Lightning in the Meryl Hansed Memorial Hall continues and is expected to be completed before the end of February. This means that display of this aircraft and the Hunter Mk 5 in the same Hall will be partly restricted by protective coverings for the first few weeks of the 2009 season.
