The Fleet Air Arm Museum is devoted to the history of British naval aviation. Investigate naval aviation from the first manned kites, airships, seaplanes, bi-planes to the carrier craft of World War 2 and modern Sea Harriers and helicopters. Part of the display is a mock-up of the carrier HMS Ark Royal as it would have appeared in the 1970s and aircraft are displayed as if they are on the deck.
Fleet Air Arm Museum Aircraft Carrier Experience
The Aircraft Carrier Experience is an award winning tourist attraction within the Museum. It’s where Museum meets theatre. You’ll ‘fly’ by helicopter to the replica flight deck of the aircraft carrier HMS Ark Royal. On board you’ll see fighter aircraft and two enormous projection screens showing a Phantom fighter and a Buccaneer bomber taking off and landing. Once on board you will visit the control rooms and bridge.
