After a visit to RAF Cranwell for the RAF Trainers Public Display Authorisation I took a trip on the way home to check out the Aviation Heritage Centre.I parked the car and made my way into the history of RAF Cranwell from it’s early establishment as a RNAS base.The museum tells the story with display boards ,exhibits including a Jet Provest flight simulator that will let you try to land at Cranwell,I managed to land on the grass but forgot to put down the cart!
Inside the Museum is a Vampire T11 Fuselage Pod XE946 and in the Court Yard XP556 B Jet Provest T4 is displayed in RAFC marks.
Well worth a trip round when passing on the A17.The Staff were very friendly and helpful and if you need leaflets for Airfields and Memorials,This is the place to call at.
Admission is free.
