Day Trip to Gatwick Aviation Museum Friday 16th September 2016 at 11.00am
This Aviation Museum has a unique collection of British aircraft from the "golden age" of British aircraft manufacture. From the end of WWII until the 1970's British aircraft designers produced some of the most innovative and advanced aircraft of the day. From post war to cold war, this museum clearly shows that timeline in aviation terms.
In this collection there are examples from the major manufacturers of this period.
Amongst the list are classic names, Avro, Hawker, Gloster, De Havilland, English Electric, Blackburn, Percival.
The Gatwick Aviation Museum is located at Vallance By-Ways, Lowfield Heath Road, Charlwood, Surrey, RH6 0BT, Tel no. 01293 862417. It is proposed that members wishing to attend should arrive at 11.00am. Entry is by donation, with a suggested donation of £5 each.
After our visit it is further proposed that members wishing to have lunch may like to try Gatwick Manor. This is one of a number of potential meeting venues that are being considered by the committee as an alternative to the Regency Hotel.
