Army Flying Museum
The Army Flying Museum is our near-neighbour at Middle Wallop. The mission of the Museum is complementary to that of the HAAF and we are delighted to have them as our partner.
The Army Flying Museum tells the extraordinary story of the British Army in the air from the pioneering days of balloons and kites, to the Glider Pilot Regiment during World War Two, right through to modern helicopter operations.
The Museum’s collections of artefacts, medals and over thirty five fixed wing and rotary aircraft, together with imaginative displays and a clever use of interactives and video, provide a fascinating insight into the history of British Army flying. A Memorial in the Museum grounds commemorates more than 5,000 that have died in the service of British Army flying from early pioneers to modern Army Air Corps.
The Army Flying Museum is open daily from 9am to 4.00pm and offers guided tours, educational sessions, outreach workshops, family-friendly activities, a popular lecture programme (both online and in person) and a varied events calendar, including its flagship fundraising event, Wallop Wheels & Wings, every July.
For front row seats of aircraft in action, including the HAAF, look no further than the Museum’s Apache Café which overlooks the airfield and is open daily from 9am to 3.30pm with no need for Museum admission. It is a great spot to enjoy a tea or coffee and a slice of delicious homemade cake and enjoy the view, or treat yourself to breakfast, lunch, or a light snack.
