The Royal Aircraft Factory SE 5a scout was one of the most successful British fighter aircraft of the First World War and was one of the first aircraft to fly from the newly created RAF Tangmere in 1918 when No 92 Squadron trained here before leaving for the Western Front. The Museum’s replica was built to mark the centenary of the outbreak of the First World War and constructed by a small team drawn from our engineering staff using original drawings and employing the same techniques that were used for the original aircraft.
The Tangmere Museum has 3 computer-controlled Flight Simulators for visitors to ‘fly’.
It also has a D-4 Link Trainer which may be flown by suitably-qualified visitors by prior arrangement only. Please click HERE for terms and conditions of use.
