Tucked away in northwest Hampshire lies one of the Test Valley’s hidden gems. The Museum of Army Flying sits adjacent to the busy Army Air Corps Airfield at Middle Wallop, just outside Salisbury.

Two large hangar buildings house the impressive journey of British soldiers in the air from the pioneering days of balloons and kites, to the Glider Pilot Regiments dropping at Arnhem right through to the modern chapter of helicopter operations. Often likened to the Tardis, visitors are frequently met with surprise at the volume of artefacts, medals and over thirty five fixed wing and rotary aircraft. Imaginative displays with clever use of interactives and video provide for fascinating insight into their role in the British military that is still an integral part of modern day operations.

For front row seats of these aircraft in action, look no further than the Museum’s Apache Café. Overlooking the active airfield and open daily without the need for a Museum ticket, this is an excellent spot to enjoy a bite to eat or drink, whilst admiring all manner of AAC Aircraft.

The Museum of Army Flying is open daily from 10.00 to 16.30 (17.30 throughout July and August) except for 24, 25 and 26 December.
