Cranwell Aviation Heritage Centre saw more than 300 people pass through its doors this weekend as they celebrated 100 Years of Aviation.

Friday, April 1, marked the 100th anniversary of Cranwell opening as a Naval Air Service station and was a training station to teach officers to fly before becoming the Royal Air Force two years later.

To celebrate this milestone, Cranwell Aviation Heritage Centre hosted a three day event – 100 Years of Aviation – and exhibited a special one-off exhibition including Royal Flying Corps uniforms and artefacts dating back to the First World War. A unique timeline was also created that illustrates the 100 years to present day.

Over the three days, 330 visitors passed through the door to discover the history of this iconic establishment and viewed incredible original uniforms, borrowed from local collector Mike Credland from a local museum at the Manor House Stables in Martin.

“It has been a great weekend,” said Heritage and Tourism Assistant, Angela Riley.

The collection will now be staying at the centre until May 7. The next event at the centre will be 75 Years of Jet Flight on May 14-15.
