Arts and crafts probably isn’t the first thing that comes to mind when you think of British Army Flying, but in this fascinating podcast Dan Ball explores the unique way the Army Flying Museum in Middle Wallop is using craft to involve the local community with our aviation history.
And that’s not the only thing on this podcast! With over 150 years of history, the Army Air Corps and its predecessors have a fascinating story that spans some of the UK’s most tumultuous moments. The Army Flying Museum brings these tales to the modern day with dazzling realism. Dan talks about how they pull it off, along with some of the exciting things on display. How did a child-sized dummy hidden in the back of a garden shed become one of the pieces? Uncover the incredible story!
