Vulcan bombers, fascinating snippets of information and very friendly staff. Sons and I had a great time and even my wow said it was much more interesting than she thought it would be. Highly recommended

“Weekends only”
Reviewed 31 May 2014

This is run by volunteer so considering this it is very good if you are a big fan. Miss the cafe if you want a cuppa that is tasteful however we did go when they were rushed off their feet so maybe not long enough for the tea bag!

Susan, many thanks for the feedback, we hope you enjoyed your visit. We'll pass on your comments to the cafe volunteers regarding the tea.

“I loved it so much I want to volunteer”
Reviewed 22 May 2014 via mobile

The gala weekend was amazing! Sheer hard work from the small team delivered a wonderful afternoon with stunning exhibits and knowledgable staff. I liked it so much and was so impressed that I've applied to be a volunteer. Hope to see you there soon! You'll love it too!

“Not to be missed if visiting Gloucestershire”
Reviewed 20 May 2014

This is a fantastic place to visit and it's only going to get better in the future. Plans are in place to expand the hangar space for more exhibits being restored and even an educational area.
Brilliant, children of all ages between 3 and 103 will love it.
