will feature three replica Spitfires and a Hawker Hurricane currently being
restored with original parts. Some additional activities such as Bomber Command

Squires Gate was home to many of the Polish RAF squadrons in WW2, many being
formed in Blackpool. Hangar 42 was constructed in 1939 for the Royal Air Force
and has been relatively untouched since 1945, retaining many original features.
The Visitor Centre has been developed to ensure that the sights,
sounds and equipment of the era are brought back to life to give visitors a
valuable insight into the realities of fighting on the ground, as well as in
the air during the dark years of World War Two.
