Some say its a scrapyard and they aren't far wrong. But if someone doesn't make some space to hold on to these milestones of flight they'll be gone for good. And I guess that what they are trying to do here is delay that process [and in some cases a sad inevitability] for as long as possible. And I admire... More

The museum in some ways can appear as a 'bit of this' and a 'bit of that', there are coherent themes but the slightly cramped location can make following them a bit tricky and dyed-in-the wool enthusiasts may not be too impressed by the smallish number of complete airframes. Nevertheless there are gems galore and what is impressive is the... More

The place is like a scrapyard for planes. do not expect to see any planes in a full state this is just a museum of parts. Expensive for what it is will not recommend anyone goes for a day out with the family its just disappointing to say the least

Enjoyable way to spend about 3 hours. Children enjoyed being able to roam around the planes and to sit in some of the cockpits. It's no RAF Cosford so if you go with this in mind you won't be disappointed. At £16 entry for the family can't complain.

had a day out recently, no planned visit but ended up at this place, what a nostalgic place to visit, various types of aircraft in different states of repair or complete, from early days to jet flight, towards the end of our visit we called into the shop on site and was amazed at all the different models on display...
