New Lightning Simulator

March, 2010

The Museum is developing a new and very realistic EE Lightning simulator in which the ‘pilot’ sits in a detailed Lightning cockpit and flies the sim using a real Lightning control column and throttles. It’s an exciting project and it is hoped to be able to demonstrate this new feature to visitors on Taste of Tangmere day. Looking further to the future it is planned to hold events where pre-booked visitors can enjoy a visit to the Museum’s Lightning cockpit, a talk by an ex-Lightning pilot and fly the new simulator under expert tuition. Dates for these events will be announced shortly.

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.

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.

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.
