Chocks Away! This huge, family-friendly museum is packed with jets and helicopters that children can climb into – and an exhibition on women aviators
The Fleet Air Arm is the part of the Royal Navy responsible for naval aircraft, and this museum, in four enormous hangars tells its story, from the first manned kites towed behind naval vessel at the beginning of the 20th century. The tale continues with helium-filled airships, seaplanes, bi-planes, jets, bombers and modern delta-wing craft. While it’s great for aviation enthusiasts, it’s family friendly, too. Kids can climb into a real Sea King helicopter, board Concorde 002 (the first British prototype to be flown), dress up as a pilot, and squeeze into the cockpit of a Vampire jet.
