New Year New Attractions

February, 2008

Although the Museum has been shut to the public for December and January it has been far from inactive. Teams of Volunteers have been working hard throughout the period refreshing, refurbishing and installing new exhibitions.

Our US exhibit has been revamped and a diorama of US built aircraft that served in the RAF has been added. Radio enthusiasts will enjoy the improvements we have made to that display. In a new tribute feature a twenty minute film about our late President, Neville Duke, will be showing continuously next to WB188 – the red Mk 3 Hawker Hunter in which he gained his world airspeed record in 1953.

An update of our very popular SOE exhibit is also in progress and due to be completed in the next month or so. And finally a fine new 50 inch screen has been introduced into our Video Theatre to add new quality to the popular introductory video that for many people is the start their visit.
