On 10 April, forty three students and staff of this year’s Higher Command Course at the Joint Services Command and Staff College, Shrivenham visited the Museum as an element of their ‘Staff Ride’ whereby members visit military establishments in the Portsmouth area before embarking on a tour of the D-Day battlefields in Normandy. This is the fifth such visit to the Museum of this senior military staff course and on this occasion, to thank the Museum for hosting the course each year, a large professionally built model of a Harrier GR Mk 7 was presented by the College’s Commandant, Air Vice Marshal Ray Lock. Group Captain David Baron, Chairman of the Museum’s Trust, accepted the model which is now displayed in one of the Museum’s aircraft halls.
The Tangmere Museum has 3 computer-controlled Flight Simulators for visitors to ‘fly’.
