The Museum of Army Flying at Middle Wallop in Hampshire tells the story of British Army Flying from the earliest attempts to conduct operations from gas filled balloons to today’s Army Air Corps which has operated with distinction around the world in a number of roles including combat operations in Iraq and Afghanistan.

In 1984, the museum moved from a location ‘behind the wire’ to a new purpose-built hangar located on the edge of the airfield. The museum was then further extended and in 2018 successfully embarked on a multi-million pound, three-phase development and refurbishment project: Project Eagle.

Project Eagle included the building of a memorial to those who have died in the service of British Army flying; the building of a new archive, a reinterpretation of the collection, improved learning, corporate, entrance and volunteer facilities and a substantial community outreach programme.

The Museum houses a unique collection of 100 years of aviation history which is of national and international importance.
