European Heritage Open Day SUN 15 SEPT

15 Sept 2024

The UAS are again going to be part of the EHOD Weekend again on the SUNDAY 15th SEPTEMBER, 2024 to give the public free access to our amazing pair of authentic Second World War aircraft hangars.

Building on the record-breaking 3,500 visitors during EHOD 2023 – one of the largest EHOD attractions within NI - the Ulster Aviation Society ('UAS') are again giving the public free access to their amazing pair of authentic Second World War hangars, raising awareness of the site's cultural significance and heritage, along with its educational benefit to the community.

We'll have many of our aircraft outside in our compound again with our new RAF Jaguar jet, plus Army' Lynx and Gazelle Helicopters out on display for the first time.

Come and wander around as we will have some volunteer Tour Guides on-hand at various aircraft and exhibits. There may well be some restoration work going on at the back of Hangar 2 (on the right) to show you what some of our Volunteers do.

Hangar Opening Times: 10am – 5pm both days (SAT & SUN) via Gate 3.

We’ll have multiple, volunteer Tour Guides on site both days all being well to help people at various aircraft around our two Second World War hangars, if they require.

We’ll have both Indoor and Outdoor exhibits.

We have extensive Car Parking now with our new parking facilities being made available directly outside our fence opposite our hangars — to the Left as you drive past the prison walls.

Visitors will simply walk across to our gates and be directed from there through the middle gates, up to registration.

We should have a mobile catering company on-site for Teas & Coffees etc.
