Meryl Hansed Memorial Hall

The newest Hall at the museum houses a 1950s Line Hut which serves as the focal point of the Museum’s preservation efforts – the Hunter Mk 5 and the English Electric Lightning F53 – both aircraft generously donated to the museum by Raymond and the late Meryl Hansed.

Also on view is a Link Trainer under restoration and a presentation on Operation Musketeer – the Suez Emergency of 1956.
