World at War Weekend, The Helicopter Museum

See the land surrounding Weston Airfield’s original WW2 era control brought to life by huge living history camps, military re-enactors and historic vehicles.  Meet British, German and Russian troops in their encampments and explore the Vietnam Village and get up close to incredible artillery and weapons including the 30 foot Bristol Bloodhound Missile.  We will be joined by incredible military veterans including the last surviving Dambuster, George ‘Johnny’ Johnson (Saturday only),  giving visitors a rare opportunity to have memorabilia signed.  Historic aircraft will be visiting the museum over the weekend (subject to flying conditions and availability) and visitors can even climb aboard a Vietnam veteran ‘Huey’ during open cockpit sessions and pilot a Lancaster Bomber flight simulator.  2018’s centrepiece charity will be Blesma, the limbless veterans charity.
