Bruntingthorpe is home to the Cold War Jets collection and is open to visitors, every Sunday from 10:00.
Admission is £5 for adults and accompanied children are free.
The museum staff have access to the Guppy if you'd like a look around, or, get in touch with us and we can arrange a visit at most other times.
The restoration team are there on a Wednesday afternoon and the occasional Saturday.
Twice a year we have an open day where our collection of active aircraft perform fast taxi runs along our 2 mile runway.
These include Lightnings, Buccaneers, Hunters, Victor, VC.10, Nimrod, Comet and more all subject to serviceability.
