The Experience

Ticket holders will have the chance to explore two of the Cold War’s most iconic aircraft; the Avro Vulcan B.2. and the McDonnell Douglas Phantom FGR.2, which between them tell a story of uncertainty and tension that loomed over the world for decades. You will gain special access to both these mighty warriors, and allow you to climb in to and take a seat in the cockpit of the Vulcan and the pilot’s seat of the Phantom. This is a rare opportunity to experience what it was like to fly these great aircraft. Ticket holders will also be given a full ground tour, with the chance to get up and close to other significant Cold War aircraft, including the BAC Lightning F.6, the Handley Page Victor K2, and the English Electric Canberra PR3, and hear fascinating real-life stories of the people who flew the aircraft.

Due to the popular demand from 2019, The Vulcan and Cold War Experience will run additional sessions on a Wednesday or Saturday in conjunction to the last Tuesday of every month. Time slots are available from 10.20am to 12.40pm on Tuesday. Then on Wednesdays and Saturdays the Experience will run 12.00pm to 2.20pm.
