Take flight

An education centre has been set up at the Museum of Flight in East Fortune. The centre, which is in a refurbished Second World War Nissen hut, includes two classrooms and a meeting room. It is part of an pound;8 million development programme at the museum, which will involve upgrading the hangars and site buildings and the development of permanent exhibitions and interactive exhibits.

The education programme covers not only the 60th anniversary of the Second World War but also a look at what is involved in building aircraft, including, from Easter, supersonic aviation and Concorde.

The new full-time learning and programmes officer, Adam Love-Rodgers, says:

"Our education programme is intended to give children a taste of the history of East Fortune airfield, including what it was like to serve there during the Second World War, so it is very appropriate that the children will be learning in one of the original buildings. We already have over 300 children from schools across East Lothian booked for our autumn programme and look forward to welcoming many more."
