Seats donated for BAE 146
Aircraft sales and leasing company Falko Regional Aircraft has donated 111 blue leather seats from a refurbished BAE 146 airliner to the museum. They have been fitted in the museum’s 146-100 Series aircraft with the smaller number of seats they have replaced being donated to the new Bristol Aerospace Centre at Filton, Bristol.
Touching the last remaining part of a Sea Hornet was very special
It’s great to have largely unrestricted access throughout the museum and exhibits.
Amazing seeing all the history and the workmanship that goes into the restoration of all the planes. It really is a hands on experience and the volunteers really make this place special. Definitely will return when the new hangar is finished.
There are lots of curators around who are only too pleased to give information on the history of the various exhibits. Well worth the entrance fee!
It was a very good opportunity to learn about British aviation history and very enjoyable for kids too. I will definitely recommend this museum. True that it could be better kept, but definitely worth it for the aviation enthusiast.
We had a lovely day out. We really enjoyed all of the brilliant exhibits!
You can see the aircraft being restored and interesting exhibits.
If you are interested in the history of aviation in the UK then this is an absolute must visit place. It follows the history of the Dr Havilland family’s passion for flying developing into manufacturing their own airplanes.
Very relaxed atmosphere and great quality of information.
As a Hertfordshire lad by birth, I should have known about this place years ago. But glad I’ve found it now. Many have described it as a ‘Gem’ and it really is. It’s so important that the memory and history of the great De Havilland organisation is remembered and passed on to future generations.
