Witness an air sea rescue when a Buccaneer is lost over the side into the sea. There's even a nuclear bomb.Situated alongside RNAS Yeovilton, you may also see aircraft flying in and out.Visit The Fleet Air Arm Museum. The thrill is being there.

Our second visit to this museum. The carrier exhibit with lights and sound effects really brings it to life. The other highlight for our kids is going into the Concorde test aircraft.
