2019 Special Event Diary
The museum has been at the forefront of aviation preservation for more than 45 years. We always aim to provide a friendly environment where you can start to appreciate the important contribution that aviation has made to both local and national history. Each year we organise a range of special events and activities and below is an outline of what we have on offer in 2019.
