Thanks to those of you that have contacted the Museum during the pandemic requesting a visit to see us.

Commencing from 3rd April 2022 the Museum will be open every 1st and 3rd Sunday of the month until October 2nd.

We look forward to seeing you.

Although we are kindly accommodated by Wattisham Flying Station, we receive no funding from either the Station or MOD and in order to survive we rely entirely on donations from visitors enabling us to retore, preserve and display precious aircraft, photographs and literature covering the history of the airfield.

The members consist of some 20 people of various ages from all walks of life whose aim is to maintain the Museum’s condition and to inform and to educate our visitors of the life of both the RAF and AAC while at the Station using illustrations, models and examples of the aircraft they used to carry out their missions where possible.

Managed by a small committee, the Group shares the tasks required to modernise and present the past in as interesting way as possible within the geography of the buildings provided.

Following a meeting with Wattisham Flying Station management team it has been decided that due to the Covid-19 situation and the fact that we as a small museum only having limited toilet and hand washing facilities for our visitors and our staff members we could not meet the necessary strict hygiene requirements in order to meet the governments Covid-19 regulations.

So it was with much sadness and regret to say that our museum remained closed for the rest of 2021 but we now approach our opening on April 3 2022 for a full season assuming that the Covid-19 situation remains under control.

We would like to thank those of you who have contacted us about visiting in 2022. Until then our very best wishes to you all and stay safe.

We look forward to seeing you in 2022.
