Tangmere Military Aviation Museum
Tangmere Military Aviation Museum was established in 1982 on the old RAF Tangmere airfield. From its beginnings in 1916, through its illustrious service as one of Britain''s front line fighter bases during World War II and on to its key role as home to the world speed record breaking aircraft of the High Speed Flight in the post-war years it has occupied a unique place in aviation history.
The museum contains countless fascinating exhibits. Here you can see priceless historic aircraft such as Neville Duke''s world record breaking Hawker Hunter, actual equipment used by the brave SOE agents who were carried into occupied France on ''black Lysander'' flights from Tangmere, flight simulators where you can try your hand at flying, a full sized replica of the very first Spitfire prototype and more. Much more.
