Tuesday March 11th 2014 - TAG Aviation Farnborough and Berkshire Museum of Aviation
We have arranged another visit to one of the countries’ busiest business airfields where we will be hosted by TAG Aviation.
From there we will drive to Woodley (near Reading) for a guided tour of the Museum of Berkshire Aviation. Woodley Airfield was once a thriving aircraft manufacturing site, particularly during its time as the home of Miles Aircraft and later Handley Page (home of the Herald). The museum has many unique exhibits covering this era as well as the story of Fairey Aviation at White Waltham.
The Farnborough visit is now full, but we are running a reserve list. More places are available if you wish to visit just Woodley. The Farnborough visit is free but there will be a £5 per head charge for Woodley. Arrival time at Farnborough will 0945 and 1415 at Woodley.
