This event has finished Took place on: Saturday, 6th Aug 2022


The Rolls-Royce Merlin engine was used in many of the famous fighter aircraft during the Second World War – most notably, the Supermarine Spitfire and Hawker Hurricane.

Hear the engine roar on the museum's ‘airfield’ this summer. The engine will be on display and will do 4 engine runs a day. It’s loud, windy and great fun!

The engine will be switched on at 10.30am, 12.30pm, 2.30pm and 4.30pm.

The Merlin Engine demonstration lasts for 10-15 minutes and it will be very loud. The Merlin will be within a fenced area and you will be at least 10 meters away from it at all times.
