I am sorry our museum was not to your liking. I can only say that 485 other Tripadvisor reviews (99%) do not agree with you.

The enthusiasm of the owners is clear to see. From the warm welcome to the exhibits that have been lovingly restored. We spent over two hours here today and we would visit again. If you come to Cornwall this is a place you must visit.

The museum does not own the runways which I believe belong to a farmer who keeps a flock of sheep on them. The museum probably know who to contact, maybe worth a phone call.
