Training Aircraft at Cranwell

Saturday 1 October to Friday 26 March 2017

Do you know what a Bristol Bulldog looks like? Can you spot a Hawker Hart? Come and discover more about the many different types of training aircraft at Cranwell Aviation Heritage Centre’s upcoming exhibition.

Opening on Saturday 1 October, explore RAF Cranwell’s history as a training school and learn about the types of aircraft that have flown at Cranwell over the last 100 years.

This exhibition was inspired by the success of their 100 Years of Aviation exhibition which was held earlier in the year to celebrate the centenary of Cranwell opening as an airbase. The exhibition received over 300 visitors over three days and was extend to the end of the month due to its popularity.

“Cranwell has such an extensive history,” says Heritage Assistant, Angela Riley “there are nearly 40 aircraft that have flown at Cranwell with fascinating facts about them which visitors will be able to explore whilst enjoying the display.”

Training Aircraft at Cranwell will be open to the public from Saturday 1 October to Friday 26 March 2017 from 10am to 4pm (weekends only).
