About This Attraction
Tucked away in Northwest Hampshire, the Army Flying Museum sits next to the busy Army Air Corps Airfield at Middle Wallop near Stockbridge.
The two large hangars house the journey of British soldiers in the air. From the pioneering days of balloons and kites in the late 1800s to the modern chapter of helicopter operations, more than 35 aircraft tell the story of army aviation. Imaginative displays with the clever use of interactive also give an insight in to the development of the British military.
For front row seats of these aircraft in action, look no further than the Museum’s Apache Café. Overlooking the active airfield open daily with no need for museum admission, this is the spot to enjoy a bite to eat and watch the aircraft fly past. Good food, friendly staff and a great view make this a popular place to dine.
There is also a beautiful memorial, the only one in the country to list the names of 5,127 soldiers who have died in service of British Army Flying. Its circular design is reminiscent of a tumulus, commonly found in Hampshire countryside and offers a quiet place to reflect on the bravery of army aviators past and present.
