Description of event

This is an open cockpit style event that will be used to commemorate the 40th Anniversary of these two aircraft arriving at the museum. The Shackleton was dismantled and moved to the museum by road in spring 1977, in what remains the largest aircraft dismantling project ever undertaken by the museum and its members. While later in the summer the Hastings was flown from RAF Scampton to join the museum collection. Both aircraft remain firm favourites on the museum's cockpit opening rota and normally admission costs a small additional fee. On this weekend access to both aircraft will be free, but as ever donations are always welcome to aid the museum's fund raising efforts.
