An evening at the Gatwick Aviation Museum

at Gatwick Aviation Museum

The Gatwick Aviation Museum, located just north of the 08R threshold at London Gatwick Airport, has a unique collection of British aircraft from the "golden age" of British aircraft manufacturing.

From the end of WWII until the 1970's British aircraft designers produced some of the most innovative and advanced aircraft of the day. From post war to cold war, this museum clearly shows that timeline in aviation terms.

Join us for the first nightshoot at the museum, which will include the following aircraft under lights. 

The car park will open at 6.30pm, with entry to the event from 7pm - just in time for sunset. The event will then run until approximately 10pm.

Finally, we are hopeful that the Shackleton will run engines on the night.

Please note that all aircraft attendance is subject to serviceability, crew availability, and other commitments. The following list is not final and cannot be held responsible for late changes.
