Classic Air Force Coventry is now closed

...but scroll down for some great news

We closed our doors at the end of the 2015 flying season, following the announcement of our founder, Mike Collet, that he had decided to retire from historic aviation. It's been a fabulous and memorable time and we're sure that our unique collection of Cold War classic aircraft will be remembered fondly by all who came into contact with it. We wish clear skies to all of the aircraft as they continue their magnificent careers, hopefully for many years into the future.

Cornwall Aviation Heritage Centre

We're absolutely delighted to refer you to the superb Cornwall Aviation Heritage Centre in Newquay, where you'll find a truly unique collection of veteran aircraft. And it's not just a case of pointing respectfully from behind a barrier, here there are opportunities to climb aboard such classic rarities as the Vickers Varsity and the giant VC10. It's a rare opportunity to immerse yourself in the sights and smells of aviation at the dawn of the jet age.

Sited in and around a genuine Cold War Hardened Aircraft Shelter, it's an unmissable destination if you're travelling to - or living in - the south west.
