An exhibition featuring Air Chief Marshal Sir Frederick Rosier GCB CBE DSO was officially opened at the Museum on 26 June by his son David (pictured). Sir Frederick had a long and distinguished RAF career and served at RAF Tangmere for three years before the start of the Second World War flying Hawker Furies and Hurricanes with No 43 Squadron. Fifteen members of the No 43 Squadron Association (the ‘Fighting Cocks’), including three Air Chief Marshals, accompanied members of the Rosier family at the opening.
The Tangmere Museum has 3 computer-controlled Flight Simulators for visitors to ‘fly’.
