The next of our regular Thunder Day events takes place on Sunday 3rd August, the eve of the 100th Anniversary of the outbreak of the Great War, so it is appropriate that our two live replica’s of WWI fighters will be amongst those being fired up on the day. These are the unique Eastchurch Kitten and the Royal Aircraft Factory SE5a. which will be joined on the day by the WWII era Douglas Dakota, symbolic of the D-Day invasion and the attractive De Havilland Devon VIP transport.
The big, Cold War jets that are lined up are the Blackburn Buccaneer; Nimrod MR2 and Handley Page Victor. Subject to serviceability, static engine starts of all these aircraft will take place on the day.
A small display of classic cars from the Morris Register will complement the activities as they will be parhed up for display.
There are of course all of the Museum’s many fascinating exhibitions to explore and why not enjoy a Sunday Roast and a refreshing drink in our ‘NAAFI’ restaurant.
Due to the high fuel cost of these events, there is a slight increase to normal admission, so admission on Sunday is £10 Adults; £8 Concessions and £5 Children and £26 Family.
