Middle Wallop in Hampshire is home to the Army Air Corps. The airfield is used for training and is where most Army Air Corps pilots begin their careers. It has the largest grass airfield in Europe and is situated close to major military centres such as Aldershot, Wilton, Bovington, and Tidworth.
Located beside the Army Air Corps Centre in Middle Wallop is the Museum of Army Flying which is dedicated to the history of flying in the British Army. The Museum covers the history of Army aviation from the Balloon sections of the Royal Engineers, through the establishment of the Royal Flying Corps in 1912 and Air Observation Post(AOP) Squadrons. It brings the story up to date with the establishment of the Army Air Corps in 1957, from the merger of the Glider Pilot Regiment and the AOP Squadrons.
Middle Wallop was a popular venue for air shows from the 1960s to 2000 and was known for its massed helicopter displays which usually featured over 100 helicopters which approached the crowdline from the distant horizon. There were also a couple of 'Music in the Air' displays held later, and also a small air display in 2008 called 'Wallop '08'. Unfortunately there are no longer any air shows held at this venue.
