To honour the pilots who served with gallantry and distinction during the Great War of 1914 – 1918.
After many years of dedicated work by members of the museum, our D.VII took to the skies for her first test flight on October 25th 2018.
It is a singular honour for The Great War Flying Museum to participate in the Nov. 11th 2018 flypast at Brampton. This is the centenary of the armistice that ended The Great War, a once in a lifetime opportunity for many.
We would like to encourage all members, and as many members of the public who are able to attend, to join us at our hangar on this historic day. Aircrew briefing is at 0930 hours and we will be mounting up at 1030, starting up at 1040, airborne at 1050.
There will be a simple cermony at the hangar to commemorate this important event.
Flight operations are subject to weather restrictions, but the long range forecast is satisfactory at this point.
The Great War Flying Museum is open from 11:00 am until 4:00 pm on Saturdays, Sundays, holidays, Tuesdays and Thursdays from the Victoria Day weekend in May until the weekend following the Labour Day weekend in September.
Between Labour Day and Victoria Day we have crews on-site on Tuesdays and Thursdays performing maintenance and repairs, and we welcome visitors in the hangar from 2:00 – 4:00 pm in the afternoon on those days.
