Cockpit-Fest 22 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.
We encountered a few issues during the weekend but thank you to everyone who helped us get through. We do appreciate it! Prizes will be sent on in due course. There has been some good publicity associated with the event and we hope that has helped to raise the profile of cockpit ownership!
