On Thursday 4 August Nigel Farage, the former leader of UKIP, visited the Museum to make a short film for his ‘GB News’ programme ‘Farage at Large’. Assisting him was former Museum volunteer David Lott, son of AVM George Lott a wartime commanding officer of No 43 Squadron.
Nigel was in Sussex to present his live programme that evening from Bognor Regis and wanted to feature a major attraction in the area. He was brought up near Biggin Hill and has always had an interest in military aviation, particularly the Second World War period and it wasn’t therefore surprising that the filming at the Museum focused on the remains of Hawker Hurricane Mk 1 P3179 in which twenty year old Sergeant Dennis Noble was killed in the Battle of Britain.
