We’re Back !

February, 2009

The Museum reopened on February 1st after its usual Winter Shutdown period. Though closed to the public during December and January the Shutdown has been an extremely busy time for the teams of Volunteers who have worked hard throughout the period in a coordinated plan of improvement, change and refurbishment for 2009. Among the many changes are:

  • A completely refitted library
  • New touch-screen displays
  • A refurbished ‘Nicholson’ exhibit
  • A revised RAF Tangmere exhibit
  • More display boards
  • A new Vampire T11 under restoration

Further maintenance work on the Lightning in the Meryl Hansed Memorial Hall continues and is expected to be completed before the end of February. This means that display of this aircraft and the Hunter Mk 5 in the same Hall will be partly restricted by protective coverings for the first few weeks of the 2009 season.

Talks by Tangmere

The Museum is able to offer speakers to interested groups or societies on a range of subjects connected with the history of operations at RAF Tangmere and other military aviation subjects.

Further details of the full range of presentations and the availability of speakers can be obtained by calling the museum on 01243 790090, by emailing your interest to director@tangmere-museum.org.uk or by letter marked for the attention of the Director.

Museum Development

The Museum car park has been enlarged and re-laid and audio guides provided with the assistance of LEADER – the European Agricultural Fund for Redevelopment.
