  • The Army Flying Museum, previously known as the Museum of Army Flying, is a British military aviation museum about the history of flying in the British Army. It is located beside the Army Air Corps Centre in Middle Wallop, close to Andover in Hampshire, England. The museum covers the history of Army aviation from the Balloon sections of the Royal Engineers, through the establishment of the Royal Flying Corps in 1912 and Air Observation Post (AOP) Squadrons. It brings the story up to date with the establishment of the Army Air Corps in 1957, from the merger of the Glider Pilot Regiment and the AOP Squadrons. The museum contains multiple flight simulators that anyone can use for a small fee. Outside the museum is a play park featuring aviation themed play pieces that kids can climb on, including a control tower based on the Middle Wallop control tower. The museum is raising funds for a development programme known as Project Eagle. This will secure the future of the Museum for generations to come and comprises two phases. Phase 1 of Project Eagle, which was completed on 1 September 2017, is a memorial to more than 5,000 that have died in the service of British Army Flying from early pioneers to the modern Army Air Corps. Phase 2 comprises works to improve and update the museum with innovations and new exhibits. The museum closed for the period November 2018 through to April 2019 to make this happen. As well as the capital improvements the museum will embark on an activity plan, which will involve community activity, training, education, volunteer activity etc. and run until the summer of 2021 (en)
