Milton Keynes Aviation Society
enthusing about aviation since the year 2000
Saturday June 27th, 2015
We have a half day Military History themed guided tour of what is now a National Trust nature reserve but with unique military/aviation connections. Originally home to WW1 fighter airfields, it then became an important research establishment developing radar and finally atomic weapons. We will use a towed trailer to explore the site but some walking will be involved.
The visit will last 3 hours starting at 1045.
There are still a few places available at a cost of £21 (£16 for National Trust members).

HMS Sultan and Solent Sky Museum
In the morning we visit HMS Sultan in Gosport, the Royal Navy’s primary engineering training establishment where we will learn about the maintenance of the Navy’s helicopter fleet and see the many helicopters used for training purposes.
We then move on to the Solent Sky museum for a guided tour and lecture. The museum has a number of interesting exhibits including a Supermarine S6a (of Schneider trophy fame), the sole surviving Saunders Roe SRA/1 jet flying boat fighter and a Shorts Sandringham flying boat which can be accessed by our group.
We have 20 places available at a cost of £15.
