Everyone loves the atmospheric sounds, sights and smells of the Museum’s vintage propellor driven aircraft. this summer, we’re going to be running our live aircraft on regular days each week.
C47 Dakota – Our Dakota is an original paratroop carrying aircraft and has a long career carrying troops, cargo and civilian passengers all over the world.
De Havilland Devon – Everyone loves the smoky engine starts from the Devon. The big six cylinder engines always create that smoke on their first start of the day.
Eastchurch Kitten – our tiny Eastchurch Kitten is unique. Constructed from the original plans and drawings, you can read more about it here. The tiny aircraft always generates lot of questions from visitors whenever it’s seen live.
Royal Aircraft Factory SE5a – the classic lines of a vintage World War One fighter plane, the SE5a always makes a great photo opportunity.
All of our vintage propellor driven aircraft will be running live on various dates throughout the summer. Check out our events calendar for full details of timings and availability.
