On Thursday, 21st October the Museum was a ‘stopping off’ point for a charity run by Stoneacre York Commercial to mark the 70th anniversary of the Battle of Britain and the 45th anniversary of the Ford Transit van. Travelling from York to the Ford factory at Southampton, the Stoneacre Transit team successfully completed 650 miles on a single tank of fuel whilst calling in at several Battle of Britain bases en route. All proceeds are destined for the RAF Benevolent Fund and Help for Heroes.
The Tangmere Museum has 3 computer-controlled Flight Simulators for visitors to ‘fly’.
