A group of AHA members visited the Solent Sky Museum and what a delight it was. The selection of vintage planes included a Sandringham flying boat (civilian version of the Sunderland) with the interior accessible, which gave an idea of the seating configuration and a visit to the flight deck. Other exhibits included a Spitfire, Folland Gnat and plenty of other contributory historic information
The walls and upper gallery tell the story of aviation activities in the Southampton region. Also on the upper floor was a splendid display of Hampshire Police and Fire Service history including information on Andover and Whitchurch. Following our visit, we all went for lunch and enjoyed chatting over the mornings experience.
