Museum Joins 11 Group Heritage Network

February, 2021

In November 2019 the Museum’s Curator, Charles Hutcheon, was invited to attend the inaugural meeting of the 11 Group Heritage Network at the Biggin Hill Memorial Museum. The Group’s aim is to promote military aviation museums in what was Fighter Command’s 11 Group area in the Second World War and it now has a membership of 23 in the south-east of England with more expected to join.

Following the pioneering efforts of the 11 Group Heritage Network and with the support of Historic England, the Military Aviation Heritage Networks was set up with the aim of providing support to regional members, developing mutually beneficial projects and encouraging the formation of new regional networks in the former Second World War Fighter Command 10, 12 and 13 Group areas.

The Military Aviation Heritage Networks web site contains full details of member museums and provides a one-stop portal for aviation museum events, news and activities. A Facebook page is also available.
