Bader Braves Day

July, 2010

On Sunday, 13th June, two Museum volunteers joined other participants at Douglas Bader Foundation’s “Bader Braves Day” at Goodwood aerodrome, an event put on to entertain disabled children – amputees or children born without limbs – and their families.

A PC flight simulator set up for the children to “fly” a Chipmunk from Tangmere to Goodwood proved extremely popular throughout the day – particularly so given the flying clothing, helmets, etc provided for dressing up. All were given a balsawood glider and Museum brochure to take home with them.

Talks by Tangmere

The Museum is able to offer speakers to interested groups or societies on a range of subjects connected with the history of operations at RAF Tangmere and other military aviation subjects.

Museum Development

The Museum car park has been enlarged and re-laid and audio guides provided with the assistance of LEADER – the European Agricultural Fund for Redevelopment.
