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.

Scrapheap Concorde challenge

Date: 28 - 30 May 

How can simple household objects be used to re-create the epic Concorde? Join our team during May half term (28 - 30 May) as you use your engineering skills to build your own version of the legendary aircraft. Inspired by everyone's favourite pastime, we take bottles, bin lids and newspaper and transform them into something that could go supersonic. Are you going to make a plastic bottle nose cone? Or maybe some paper plate wings? Let your imagination run wild in this free drop in activity under Concorde itself.

Motorized Lego Concorde Workshop

Date: 31 May 

In conjunction with Brick Ideas, inspire your little aviators to create their very own motorised Lego Concorde as they send it down a purpose built runway in the quickest time possible. Will you build a big Concorde or something more aero-dynamic? Power it up using Lego power functions and launch it when you're ready. This activity is free with a valid museum ticket. 

Special events through the year

Take time out and visit Fleet Air Arm Museum during the quieter months and discover the story of Concorde. On this special anniversary year, take in the scale of the historic aircraft and speak with one of our knowledgeable volunteers who'll reveal the secrets behind the design. For specific availability, please call us before arriving at the museum. Most talks last for no more than 20 minutes. Come back on a regular basis as we update our Concorde 50 page.
