Cockpit-Fest 24 Thank You

We have now come to the end of another great event at the museum that was attended by a range of different people and families.  On behalf of the museum trustees we would like to send out very big thank you the following: all of the visitors, cockpit owner and exhibitors (many who travelled significant distances to be with us), their friends and families; the museum staff, aircraft openers and volunteers who helped during the build-up, during and after the event.

There has been some good publicity associated with the event and we hope that has helped to raise the profile of cockpit ownership!

Grand Champion – Tony Collins, Buccaneer SB Mk.2, XW541

Cockpiteers cockpit – Bill Fern (SYAM), Auster AOP.9, XR238
