Coronavirus (COVID-19)

If you are planning on travelling distance to attractions, we would recommend that you contact the venues directly in advance to avoid disappointment.

If you, or any of your party have a new persistant cough, or develop a fever of 38C, we would instead advise you to use the NHS's dedicated website for professional advice.

Cold War Jets Collection

Bruntingthorpe Aerodrome is home to the Cold War Jet Collection including a Victor, Hunter, Canberra, Comet, 2 off Lightnings , Starfighter, Mystere, Sea Vixen, 4 off Buccaneers, 4 off Jet Provosts, Super Guppy, Iskra and a Jaguar. April 2010 saw a Nimrod MR2 arrive at the airfield. The latest aircraft to join the museum fleet are a Sea Harrier and an ex Boscombe Down 2 seat Jaguar, both arriving in April 2012.
Whilst these beautiful aircraft spark much interest and nostalgia, they rarely fly anywhere in the world nowadays. However, the Cold War Jets Collection at Bruntingthorpe Aerodrome maintains several of them, in fully serviceable order.
The aircraft fleet is maintained with the support of experienced volunteers. Due to the continual updating of the fleet, we are always in need of new, locally based, volunteers to work on or around the aircraft or ground support equipment.
