Aviation museum to open in Newquay this summer

Aviation fans staying in any of the cottages in Cornwall this summer are set to have something extra special to smile about, after it was announced that a phenomenal collection of historic aircraft is set to be relocated to Newquay Airport.

Previously residing up in Coventry, the decision was made by the Classic Aircraft Trust in an effort to create a fantastic new visitor attraction in the area ready for the summer. This means that a collection of classic aircrafts are set to land in the South West, with the extensive range featuring a Gloster Meteor, De Havilland’s Vampire, a Nimrod and a Percival Pembroke, a classic light transport plane. As if this splendid array of planes wasn’t enough, the museum will also be supported by a series of pleasure rides in a vintage De Haviland Dragon Rapide biplane.

With work for the museum set to begin within the next few weeks, it provides a fantastic new visitor attraction for anyone staying in the region this summer.
