This includes access to the Vulcan, which after 24th February is likely to be closed for a few weeks while important conservation work is carried out in the cockpit.

A small additional fee is charged to access each aircraft. This money goes towards the restoration and repainting of our aircraft.

Visitors are also reminded that for some aircraft admission the organisers ask that people consider making a donation to museum funds for being allowed into the aircraft or helicopter.

These donations also go towards the restoration and repainting of the aircraft.

Additional aircraft cockpits may be open each day and other details will be updated as the information becomes available.
