Open Day – a Great Success

April, 2008

The Museum’s annual Open Day took place on Sunday March 9th this year. A total of 2030 people came along, exceeding last year’s record attendance by over 25%! Our new Sea Harrier was undoubtedly a major attraction and with all the Museum’s normal attractions plus a special art exhibition of original works by two recognised aviation artists, autograph signing by the Museum’s President, Duncan Simpson, and two WW2 fighter pilots, special book sales and our Ferret armoured vehicle restoration project there was so much extra to see. Our three flight simulators and the Hunter cockpit had queues all day! Our thanks to everyone who took the trouble to come along and we look forward to welcoming you all back on future visits.
