An informal visit to Tangmere Air Museum
20 February @ 11:00 am – 2:00 pm
Tangmere Military Aviation Museum is located in a corner of the old Tangmere airfield, famed as an RAF fighter station from 1918 until Fighter Command left in 1958.
It was opened by a group of aviation enthusiasts in 1982 to promote public awareness of the United Kingdom’s military aviation heritage, to educate present and future generations in military aviation and to serve as a memorial to airmen and airwomen who gave their lives in the service of this country. Since that time it has been managed and run entirely by volunteers and in 2017 was awarded the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service.
Now one of the UK’s leading aviation museums, it is home to an impressive display of historic aircraft and has a unique collection of aviation memorabilia stretching from the First World War through to the Cold War. Amongst the many attractions, there are numerous interactive displays and aircraft cockpits and simulators for visitors to experience. Light refreshments may be purchased in the Museum’s Cockpit Café. A museum with something for all members of the family to enjoy.
This is an informal trip – no need to book just turn up on the day and pay at the museum. We will also look into a pub locally for an optional lunch after our visit.
