Located on the former World War 11, Royal Air Force Night Fighter training station RAF Twinwood Farm, now the home of the Glenn Miller Museum and annualTwinwood festival held every August Bank Holiday weekend. The Twinwood Aviation Museum is housed in the original Flight Office building, thanks to the generosity of Mr.David Wooding and Twinwood Events Ltd. The museum is funded and maintained solely by volunteers who are aviation enthusiasts and dedicated to the cause of preserving our 1939 - 1945 aviation heritage for future generations. The museum was founded in January 2003, but the members have been collecting artefacts both aviation and Home Front for many years. One of the museums activitys involves the research, location and when feasible recovery of crashed military aircraft of historical importance from the Second World War. The history of each aircraft is researched via U.S. Air Force and Air Ministry documents and reports from which an account and often poignant story of the aircraft and crew may be built up. On the location of a crash site and after obtaining permission from the land owner and a licence from the Ministry of Defence (A legal requirement under the Protection of Military Remains Act 1986) We are then able to locate with the aid of sophisticated metal detectors any remains of the aircraft and then excavate the site. Through the exhibition of such items we aim to create a museum of interest for all ages which can not only be entertaining but educational. We also aim to preserve the memory of those who fought and flew in these aircraft during the war, and to remember the thousands who made the supreme sacrifice by giving their lives to secure our freedom. It is also our aim to illustrate the work of the groundcrews who served and worked in all weather conditions to prepare arm and maintain the aircraft providing the necessary equipment to ensure victory.
