Join us as we celebrate 50 years of Concorde at Fleet Air Arm Museum

Be whisked away on Britain's fastest supersonic passenger jet, Concorde at 50,000 feet up and faster than the speed of sound. Join us for '50 years of Concorde' with brand new activities and competitions for all the family throughout 2019.

Monday is fun-day

Date: (August) Every Monday

Let your little ones be one of 50 children to win a goody bag every Monday throughout August as we continue to celebrate all things Concorde. This legendary supersonic aircraft celebrates 50 years of service - so what better way to share the achievement by giving the first 50 children a special treat. 

Friday is fly-day

Date: (August) 2nd, 9th, 16th, 23rd and 30th  

Several hundred years before the Navy’s first manned flight, Leonardo Da Vinci was already observing birds in an attempted to understand how they fly. Join us on Fridays throughout August (2nd, 9th, 16th, 23rd and 30th) to follow in his footsteps, as you get up close and personal with birds of prey from Pitcombe Rock Falconry. Displays will be running at intervals throughout the day, giving you an opportunity to see these incredible creatures in flight with a valid museum ticket.

Perfect paper planes

Date: Throughout August

Every great plane starts with a pen and a piece of paper! Visit us on any day in August to make and test a range of wild paper plane designs under Concorde. Will your design soar the furthest? Or will it crash to the floor? Come and find out in this self-guided activity.

The great museum dress up

Date: Throughout August

Enter our Summer fancy dress competition by visiting us in fancy dress, or dressing up at any stations around the museum, including our new Concorde Station, only open on Thursdays! At the end of the summer holidays, the best photo will receive a £50 voucher for our shop!
