World at War - Living History Weekend
See the land surrounding Weston Airfield’s original WW2 era control brought to life by huge living history camps, military re-enactors and historic vehicles. Meet British, German and Russian troops in their encampments, explore the Vietnam Village and get up close to incredible artillery and weapons including the 30 foot Bristol Bloodhound Missile. We will be joined by incredible military veterans including the last surviving Dambuster, George ‘Johnny’ Johnson (Saturday only), giving visitors a rare opportunity to have memorabilia signed. Historic aircraft will be visiting the museum the weekend (subject to flying conditions and availability) and visitors can even climb aboard a Vietnam veteran ‘Huey’ during open cockpit sessions and pilot a Lancaster Bomber flight simulator. 2018’s centrepiece charity will be Blesma, the limbless veteran charity. Since 1932, Blesma has been the only national Armed Forces Charity that supports limbless veterans for the duration of their lives and will be putting on a memorable display inside the museum’s hangars alongside other military charities and associations.
