    The March edition of the Manston Mirror is now available in the museum shop, priced at £1.50.

    Manston Mirror March 2014 Edition

    This month we have articles including visits to the museum by 41 Squadron RAF and pupils and staff from a school in Nuremberg. There is also a big feature on the beautiful Vulcan XH558 which we were privileged to see at Manston last summer and a debate on the Burma Spitfires. On a sadder note, the magazine includes a tribute to museum volunteer David Utting, who passed away earlier this year.

    The 20 page magazine is packed with these and many more interesting articles. Come and pick up your copy. If you’re unable to get to the museum, we do have all the back issue of the Manston Mirror available to read online.

Donations are very gratefully received. Not only because they let us know that we enjoy the support and interest of our visitors but also because, like many charities, we can claim Gift Aid support which could add an additional 20% to our donated income.
