Norfolk and Suffolk Aviation Museum

The Norfolk and Suffolk Aviation Museum, which is a volunteer-run museum and charity, is a museum collection of aircraft and aviation-related artefacts, located near the former RAF Bungay airfield in Suffolk.

First established in 1972 as the Norfolk and Suffolk Aviation Society, the museum houses a varied array of over 60 complete or partial aircraft, including rarities such as the only complete de Havilland Sea Vixen FAW.1 in private ownership, a flyable replica of the Colditz Cock escape glider, a Vickers Valetta VX580 C.2 and an FMA IA 58 Pucará that was captured by British forces during the Falklands War.

They have separate Museum buildings for:

  • Air Sea Rescue / Coastal Command
  • RAF Bomber Command
  • Royal Observer Corps & 446th Bomb Group USAAF

There are also numerous exhibitions on special subjects including WWII Decoy Crews, Boulton & Paul Norwich, RAF Link Trainers, aerial photography, radio/radar/electronic counter measures, the Home Front, and Luftwaffe wreckology.

With a shop on site, refreshments can also be found in our NAAFI themed Café and there are picnic tables throughout the site.
