The Collection opened to the public in 1963, with further aircraft and vehicles added over the years. Events that encompass flying displays and vehicle parades draw crowds from all over the world. The Collection’s aircraft and vehicles, as much as possible, are all kept working as intended – it’s where history flies and drives!
- Vintage aircraft: 1909-1950s (view the aircraft gallery)
- Veteran Vehicles: Edwardian cars, early dogcarts, commercials including buses, and 1930s-1940s cars (view the vehicle gallery)
