Spitfire Visitor Centre to open from 30 March

Spitfire Visitor Centre at Hangar 42 at Blackpool Airport reopens this month.

The Hangar 42 collection has five Spitfire replicas, of various marks. The collection also includes the Hawker Hurricane MKI and the Messerschmidt bf109e. All aircraft have been restored with original wartime parts, bringing these iconic aircraft back to life.

For a small fee, visitors can take the opportunity to sit in the cockpit of one of our Spitfires and have a number of unique photographs taken to mark your visit, while the Spitfire Flight Simulator can also be booked.

The visitor centre also has a rare collection of wartime RAF Airfield vehicles and ground equipment, all restored back to an operational standard. On Saturday open days, the centre also hosts informative tours on exhibits and talks of Lancashire’s’ wartime role. The Lancashire Aircraft Investigation Team provide a fascinating collection of WW2 aircraft crash wrecks, from the P51 Mustang to the Junkers JU88 Bomber.

Entry to the Saturday Public open days are by advance ticket purchase only.
