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 pleased to be 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.

The presentations are usually given as an audio/visual presentation using the Museum's equipment. Our presentations can be tailored to suit audiences ranging from specialist societies to community based groups and range in length from 40 to 90 minutes depending on the subject matter.

Further details of the full range of presentations and the availability of speakers can be obtained by calling the museum on 01243 790090, by emailing your interest to director@tangmere-museum.org.uk or by letter marked for the attention of the Director.
