Solent Sky Museum is located in Southampton and depicts the history of aviation in Southampton, the Solent area and Hampshire.

Geographically this area was the most important area in the country, if not the world, for aircraft experimental and development work between 1908 and the late 1960s, the most famous being the Spitfire.

History
Solent Sky Museum showcases the international importance of aviation history in Southampton and Solent area. The Solent region gave birth to the Spitfire, as well as being the home of the Imperial Airways flying boats.

Between 1910 and 1960 local aircraft manufacturers produced an incredible variety of flying machines, from experimental rocket fighters to hovercraft, helicopters and spacecraft.

There are over 20 airframes on display from the golden age of aviation, including the Spitfire and the record-breaking Supermarine S6, or you can take a guided tour of the giant Sandringham flying boat.

There is special focus on the Supermarine aircraft company, based in Southampton, and its most famous products, the Supermarine S.6 seaplane and the Supermarine Spitfire, designed by R. J. Mitchell.

There is also coverage of the Schneider Trophy seaplane races, twice held at Calshot Spit, and the flying boat services which operated from the Solent.
