The Twilight Event 2023 will give you the chance to get closer than ever before to the incredible power of an English Electric Lightning in reheat. Many of you will be aware that we no longer have access to the runway at Bruntingthorpe so fast taxy runs are not possible at the moment, but we have been busy working on a new event that will let you get up and close to our Lightnings. The Lightning will be positioned on the pan in front of the Q-Shed with our guests at a safe but close enough distance to feel the rumble, smell the avpin and see the mighty Avon’s in full reheat.
This is an experience not to be missed but due to space limitations we are restricted to just 200 tickets and these can only be purchased via our website. Gates open at 14:00hrs, please do not arrive early as this will cause traffic problems on the adjacent narrow roads. Please bring a copy of your PayPal receipt – this is your ticket.
Tickets are just £30 each and please enter the site from behind the Q-Shed off Bath Lane you will see the access gate. DO NOT TRY AND USE THE MAIN ENTRANCE TO THE AIRFIELD!
Entry is only via the access gate on Bath Lane. If you look at map above the blue circle is the museum entrance, red circle is Cox – head for the blue!
Please stay within the designated area around the Q-Shed at all times, this is for your own safety.
Our shop will be open, please bring cash if possible, and there will be refreshments, photo opportunities and a chance to once again get up and close with our Lightnings.
