A major new collection of aircraft propellers is one of the features of going on display for the first time in our Jubilee year. These propellers were gifted to the Museum in 2006 and much effort has been put into their appropriate preparation and display in the Merston Hall. Most are wooden and come from aircraft of WW1 or from the ‘between the wars’ period. Centrepiece of the collection is a very fine four bladed propeller reputed to come from an SE5a flown by WW1 ace Captain Albert Ball VC.
The Tangmere Museum has 3 computer-controlled Flight Simulators for visitors to ‘fly’.
