Welcome to The Aeropark

 

The Aeropark is both an aviation museum and a viewing area where you can study the preserved planes of yesteryear or watch the modern airliners of today taking-off and landing at a growing international passenger and cargo airport.

Within the Aeropark there are two viewing mounds which are just 170 metres north of the main east/west runway of the airport (Runway 09 Threshold). The mound which is at the eastern end of the Aeropark is the height of the airport perimiter fence which means that you can get and unrestricted view accross the airport perfect for taking photographs.

 

Appeal:

On the evening of the 25th June 2017, after a very successful open day, two offenders broke in to the Aeropark and after causing extensive damage to the shop and staff room and breaking the door to the hangar, they then stole a safe out of the shop which had a considerable amount of money inside. All in all they not only stole the takings but caused thousands of pounds in damages which we will have to pay to be replaced.
As a lot of people know we are a charity and we rely on public funding and donations, which is why we have our open days. They are to raise money to keep the aircraft in the best shape we can. All of the people that work here are volunteers and we have put in an enormous amount of time, money and hard work over the past few months to make your experience with us a better one.
To say we are gutted and disappointed is putting it mildly. As you can see from the photos we need to replace, doors, windows and parts of the shop, even toys, so we would like to appeal to the public, if you can help in any way by either donating even a small amount or even if you can donate a door or window, anything that needs replacing, we would be extremely grateful!
