The Museum of Army Flying

The Museum of Army Flying brings to life the exciting story of ‘soldiers in the air’ and allows visitors a fascinating and imaginative glimpse into the world of the army airmen.

The Museum of Army Flying is situated Hampshire, five miles south of Andover at Middle Wallop Army Air Corps base.

Beaver

History
Middle Wallop was opened in 1940 as RAF MIddle Wallop and became a Fighter Command station during the Battle of Britain. The station was also used by the USAAF during WWII but returned to the RAF after the war.

In 1954 a Development Flight (CFS) with helicopters was formed there, this led to the Joint Experimental Helicopter Unit in 1955. On 1 September 1957, when British Army aviation became independent of the RAF, Middle Wallop transferred to the new Army Air Corps. It became the school of Army Aviation, to which it has remained to the present date.

Sopwith Camel

What to see
Two aircraft hangars house over 35 inspirational aircraft and an array of machines and memorabilia that spans nearly 150 years and charts the incredible history of military flight.

SycamoreAircraft exhibits include both fixed wing and rotary aircraft such as Sopwith Camel (above), Westland Lynx, DHC Chipmunk, DHC Beaver (top), Aérospatiale Gazelle, Westland Scout, Bristol Sycamore (left) and the Saunders-Roe Skeeter among others.

Alongside the aircraft the Museum has a range of incredible artefacts. There are many fascinating hidden treasures and curios to be discovered that illuminate the incredible stories of the heroes, and trailblazers who contributed to the development of flight within the army.

It’s easy to come for the morning and end up spending a whole day immersed in the history.

These is plenty for families to enjoy in the Museum including an indoor and outdoor play area, cinema, 1940’s House and great gift shop.  The Museum is also situated next to the Army Air Corps active airfield and visitors can often see Lynx and Apache helicopters flying on training exercises.
 
The Apache Café serves a range of freshly brewed teas and coffees and light meal and  based at the Museum enjoys wonderful views over the airfield.
