Aircraft

The aircraft in our collection are recorded below.  Most are located under cover in the Hangar but some are displayed outside.   Many are awaiting restoration work, which will only be possible when our new workshop is built next to the existing Hangar. 

This historic footage shows the Gloster Meteor in action.  Thanks to Siteseen Ltd. for generously allowing us to share this footage with Museum visitors.
