Grandma Flew Spitifires! is an exhibition which tells the story of the amateur pilots who were allowed to fly planes between factories and front-line squadrons during WWII.
The Grandma Flew Spitfires exhibition brings generations together to explore the history of the Air Transport Auxiliary. The Spitfire simulator is a sell-out attraction for young and old at the Heritage Centre.
Young people from nearby schools have recorded video interviews with former members of the ATA about their experiences during WWII which will be added to the archive.
Grandma Flew Spitfires was a semi-finalist in the 2012 National Lottery Awards.
