“This year the event returns bigger and better than ever before! Military vehicles, re-enactors, aircraft cockpits and some surprise aerial visitors (maybe even a warbird or two) make it a fun day out,” he said.

“Held at the aerodrome at the same time will be the first of this year’s Radial and Trainer Fly Ins - who knows what might turn up.

“The event starts at 10.30am and runs until 4.30pm. Parking is extremely limited so please arrive early and car share,” he added.

Following the grand opening the museum will be open as usual every weekend and bank holiday from 10.30am to 4.30pm until the end of September.

In July, August and September, the museum opens on Wednesday afternoons between 1.30pm to 4.40pm.

“Entry is free - donations welcome - parking is also free but limited! We are taking bookings for out of hours group tours,” he added.
