Solent Sky Museum in Southampton has been in existence for over 40 years.

There were over 26 aircraft companies in Southampton, it was the largest flying boat operation in the world and, of course, the town was the birthplace of the legendary Spitfire aircraft.

At present the museum is carrying out research on the Hordern Richmond Aircraft Company that produced propellers during World War II at the former Haddenham Airfield.

If any local residents worked at the Company or know of any friends or relatives who worked there, we would very much appreciate them making contact with us:
either by telephone (02380) 635830
or Email: aviation@spitfireonline.co.uk

The museum website is here: www.solentskymuseum.org

Many thanks
Alan Jones
