Reid and Sigrist Desford Visit

On Thursday 19th January, 2023 the museum hosted a visit of councillors from Leicestershire County Council. Councillor Christine Radford and Councillor Peter Bedford, were accompanied by Desford Parish Council Chair Councillor Colin Crane.

During their visit to the museum the councillors viewed the much-loved Reid and Sigrist Desford aircraft, which was flown into the former RAF Winthorpe site to join our collection on Friday 19th August, 2022.

The short visit was well received and informative, the museum trustees are now looking forward to maintaining the close links developed during the process of transferring this unique aircraft and its associated archive material into its care.
