Take flight at the Army Flying Museum at Middle Wallop, just a ten minute drive from Stockbridge, where the Museum tells the story of British Army Flying from the early days of military ballooning to the modern Army Air Corps.
The collection was started in 1946 at RAF Andover, later moving to Middle Wallop and was first opened to the public in 1974. The purpose built hanger has two large aircraft halls, a learning centre, a 1940's house display and play park.
The collection covers the five main branches of Army Aviation: Royal Engineers (1878 – 1912), The Royal Flying Corps (1912-1918), Air Observation Post Squadrons (1941 – 1957), the Glider Pilot Regiment (1942 – 1957) and the current Army Air Corps (1957- to date). Over 40 aircraft can be seen in the Museum. These range from a First World War biplane to a HueyCobra attack helicopter plus an example of every Allied glider used operationally during the Second World War.
The museum also hosts a range of events throughout the year, so time your visit with family fun days, air displays and lectures.
