Open Cockpit Tour: 17th May 2018

Open Cockpit Tour

The Fleet Air Arm Museum invites you to an evening of unprecedented access exploring in and around some of our collection’s most significant aircraft. This is an exclusive opportunity that is not usually available to the general public.

See where history was made when you look inside the cockpit of Captain Eric ‘Winkle’ Brown’s famous Vampire LZ551/G. This was the first jet aircraft to land on an aircraft carrier in 1945.

Sit inside the cockpits of Concorde 002, Westland Wessex 5 and HAS3 Lynx Helicopter. Go inside the cabin area of ‘King of the Junglies’ Sea King ZA 298 and view into the cockpits of Harrier GR9 and Hawker

P1127, to enable a comparison of prototype and last type seen in service.

And there’s more. Also enjoy access to the main museum galleries (excluding flight deck) and absorb the unique atmosphere of the museum at night.

Talk to our experienced team of curators and volunteers and learn the secrets of the museum and our collection of aircraft.

The event starts at 6pm. Tickets for this privileged access evening cost £40.00 per person. Limited spaces, advance booking is essential.

Sensible clothing and footwear must be worn. Access to aircraft is dependent upon your fitness levels and overall mobility. All visits are subject to a briefing by a member of the museum team. Aircraft line-up subject to change.
