At long last the Boscombe Down Aviation Collection will shortly be open to the public.
We are moving from Boscombe Down to Old Sarum Airfield, and will be open from 1st July 2012. Details are as follows.
Boscombe Down Aviation Collection, Hanger 1, Old Sarum Airfield, Salisbury, SP4 6DZ.
Summer Opening hours Tuesdays to Sundays, from 1000 to 1700 hours.
Entrance fee £10.00, Concessions available. Hanger mobile number 07985105568.
The Museum is run by volunteers. We have a lot of hard work getting everything in place by the opening date as the lease was only signed to-day. Initially all the cockpits and some of the aircraft will be in place. However because of the logistics involved in moving some of the larger aircraft, not all will be in place for a few more weeks after the initial opening date.
If you do visit us please bear in mind what we are trying to achieve on a very limited budget. The collection will grow but it is no mean task dismantling and re-assembling the airframes. We are also looking for volunteers and sponsors.
