TANGMERE MILITARY AVIATION MUSEUM

A military museum located on a corner of the historic Tangmere RAF station, which was on the front line during the Battle of Britain. It also provided the forward take-off point for Lysander aircraft, based at RAF Tempsford in Bedfordshire, to refuel before landing agents in enemy-occupied Europe. The museum was opened by enthusiasts in 1982, owns a number of historic and replica aircraft and includes flight simulators and several permanent exhibitions.
