The Army Flying Museum to Reopen on Monday 17th May.

The Army Flying Museum has brought out the big guns to celebrate their reopening on Monday 17th May. Several outstanding items that have been in storage since the museum’s refurbishment in 2019 have made a welcome return to the visitor experience, as well as the new and old favourites returning to its collection. New on display will be a ZPU-4: a four-barrelled anti-aircraft gun that was developed in the Soviet Union after the Second World War and was used by the Armed Forces of countries all over the world. Some old favourites making a re-appearance include the Chipmunk T Mk.10, the Airfield ‘Caravan’ and the Reynolds Boughton Heavy Utility Truck, which was converted to a firefighting vehicle for Army Air Corps use. 

The museum had historically given annual passes to those who Gift Aided their entry; however, an annual pass will now be offered to every paying visitor who will be able to come back as often as they like for 12 months following their first visit. This is an incredible offer that you do not want to miss out on! 

Museum curator, Susan Lindsay, said: “We’re really pleased to be able to get these items back on out on display where they can be seen and enjoyed by our visitors. With a varied programme of holiday activities, we have on offer, we hope people will take full advantage of the offer.”  

On July 3rd ’21, the brand-new Wallop Wheels & Wings even will give you the chance to see 300 super and classic cars and bikes, as well as 40 classic aircraft. This is a brilliant day out for the whole family with numerous attractions including a Kid’s Zone, military area, corporate village, live music, beer tent and food court. This will be outdoors to ensure complete Covid safety. Tickets are on sale now!
