  1. This is a small museum that is packed with interest for the WW2 aircraft enthusiast. Well worth the visit especially if you are into the technical side of aircraft and their operation. Met some very interesting and knowledgable staff.
    Well done and keep up the good work!

  2. Would you kindly email me the date of the land army event this August, as my elderly friend who was stationed at Brenzett would love to visit. We have done so for at least 3 years.

  3. I’m interested in the Autogyro you have in the Collection. if it does not have a civil registration I can add it to the British Aviation Preservation Council’s Register of Anonymous Airframes – the International Register for Anonymous Airframes of any type.
