This museum has been on my to do list for a few years. The Heritage Centre celebrates the history of RAF Scampton and the famous 617 Dam Busters squadron, which is still active, but now based at a different station.
The centre is staffed by mainly ex-RAF service people and very much benefits from their passion for the subject and sense of duty and history. There were some great insights and anecdotes along the way which bring the service and those who served in it to life! The sacrifices made by very young men become even more poignant.
I was sad to hear the the airfield has been sold and that the future of the Heritage Centre is uncertain. Given that the Dam Busters is one of the most famous squadrons and unique missions that the RAF has ever carried out, a way must be found to preserve as much of the extensive and historical collection as possible, as well as Guy Gibson's office and other parts of the hangar.
Visits, where possible have to be arranged in advance for security reasons, see the RAF Scampton web page.
