Warbird Hangar Tour

Dates

26 April-23 September 2019

Warbird Hangar Tour Experiences from Twynhams Tours. ‘Celebrating Classic Aviation’ is our motto and in 2019 Twynhams Tours is enhancing an already impressive aviation portfolio with an incredible line up of new tours, passenger flight opportunities and events.

Throughout history there have been numerous occasions where pilots and their aircraft have been the last line of defence, the vanguard of a military offensive, the only option for humanitarian aid or simply attempting to be the fastest, highest or most aerobatic.

To honour those illustrious men and women, in the year of the RAF’s centenary, we have created a selection of tours that will immerse you in the history of aviation. From the heady days of learning to fly a Tiger Moth in the thirties, through the famous airborne battles and raids of World War II to the Cold War of the sixties and seventies, there is something to enthral and entertain all enthusiasts.

Our Warbird Hangar Tour Experience gives you behind-the-scenes access to world leading Spitfire experts, the Aircraft Restoration Company at Duxford Aerodrome. The ex-WWII Battle of Britain airfield, now home to the Imperial War Museum has numerous exhibitions celebrating flight through the ages and is the perfect location to immerse yourself in everything related to vintage aircraft.

Your day starts with a briefing by one of ARC's leading engineers and then moves on to a guided hangar tour of the Aircraft Restoration Company and Historic Flying hangars. You’ll get to see where the warbirds are restored from the ground up, serviced, maintained and operated from.

After a light buffet lunch it's time for the highlight of the day, your photo opportunity sitting in the cockpit of an original WWII Supermarine Spitfire.


Your Spitfire Hangar Tour Experience culminates with a photo opportunity in an original Supermarine Spitfire

Take a look at some of our highlights from 2018


Once your tour is complete there's ample opportunity to take a look around the IWM and as this is a live airfield, you may be able to catch all-sorts of classic aircraft practising displays, departing or arriving back at base. Finish off the perfect day with afternoon tea and cakes and one last chance to catch any warbirds in action before heading home from a truly unforgettable aviation experience.
