The museum is run by the Ulster Aviation Society, which aims to preserve the province’s aeronautical past. A large number of artefacts and photographs are exhibited, in addition the aircraft listed below. Originally located at Langford Lodge airfield under the name ‘Ulster Aviation Society Heritage Centre’, the Museum was forced to close in late 2004 and put all its exhibits into storage. Fortunately, a new site at Long Kesh has now been secured and the museum is being re-established. It is not yet open to the public.
At Long Kesh Airfield, on Halftown Road, off the A3 Lisburn to Lurgan road. Also reached from the A1 Lisburn to Newry road, by turning off at Hillsborough and following Culcavy Road, which goes under the M1 and becomes Halftown Road.
The new site is not yet open to the public.
See official website.
