and their teachers for an educational visit like no other. We encourage the school groups to dress in

to experience a little glimpse of what life was like in the 1940’s.

on hand for that important purchase.
One of the many attractions is the extensive air display that runs throughout the weekend, with
wartime aircraft such as the Spitfire, Dakota DC-3 and P-51 Mustang, enhancing the static displays and
other aircraft both in the air and on the ground.
