Whether you're a serious aviation enthusiast or a kid who wants to sit in fast jet cockpits, this is for you! Please note - We are at Old Sarum Airfield - NOT at the Boscombe Down airfield.

I cannot rate this place more highly! Going from cockpit to cockpit, climbing in and being able to touch everything is a dream for aeroplane enthusiasts. The hands on aspect is something you won't get anywhere else so I thoroughly recommend a visit. Oh and...More

Visited on a Sunday morning , there was flying outside plenty to watch including the sky drivers. The museum staff are a credit as they chat about the exhibits . Liked the idea of looking inside the cockpits.

Yes you can, there is a grass area beside the Comet where you can sit eat and enjoy watching the aircraft operating off the airfield. We do not allow eating or drinking in the hangar.
