Why should you? We believe it is really important to preserve these old aircraft in a flying state so that future generations can understand just what it took for young men to fly in really arduous conditions and in many cases under fire, from ships at sea. Whether it is the flimsy canvas on the Swordfish fuselage (of Bismarck and Taranto fame), the absolute basic design of the Bristol Scout which flew from ships in the Great War, or the sheer size of the Sea Vixen which was central to jet operations from aircraft carriers, it is difficult not to be moved when you get up close and personal. It is only when you see them fly that you understand just what they mean to the history of the nation and in particular, the history of maritime aviation in the Royal Navy. So, to answer the question of why should you support us, if we cannot raise the money on an annual basis to keep them operating, all of these aircraft will end up in museums and will never fly again. Our Supporters are the engine room which keep us going as a charity and for the price of less than a pint of beer or glass of wine a month you can make a real difference.
