Forthcoming virtual museum...

The Midland Warplane Museum first opened to the public in 1983 and moved to Coughton Court near Alcester the following year. It made a final move to Hatton near Warwick before closing its doors in 1993. The collection had grown too large for the premises and we were unable to get Planning Permission for an alternative site. A large number of showcases, engines and other artefacts have been in storage ever since.

The Midland Aircraft Recovery Group recovered parts from many crash sites in Warwickshire and Worcestershire. We plan to start a virtual museum before the real museum can open once again, to commemorate those who flew in the Midlands. Photographs of the artefacts will eventually appear on this page, with the background stories.

It is hoped that a CD-ROM can follow, with more photographs and information about the military aviation history of the Midlands.
