Wings Museum Visitors Comments

 
Below are genuine comments taken from the visitors book of past visitors to the Wings Museum when it was open at Redhill Aerodrome in 2008. We have now moved and are truely bigger and better than before!

"Quite Brilliant! very clear labels & explanations. A lot of work & well worth it! Thank you for a great museum."
 
"A fitting tribute, thank you."
 

"Thank you for putting together such an extensive & atmospheric display. I found the collection of items from the Reigate Hill B-17 tradedy very moving, since I was born in Reigate and have always known of this dreadful accident."

 
"Great Exhibition - brought back many childhood memories. Especially the 'sounds'. Really excellent. Thank you!"
 
"A marvellous collection! One feels humble at the great price these men paid and admiration for the museums personnel who have put so much hard work & dedication so that we may remember them."
 
"Wonderful exhibition - thank you. This needs to be supported by the council - these brave men of WW2 should never be forgotten."
 
"I am writing this for my father who is a WW2 veteran. "Most interesting museum - commendable, no stone left unturned!"

"Being here takes me back to my childhood, standing on the shelter cheering on our planes during dogfights over Kent, then being clipped round the ear for not being being down the shelter! We collected shrapnel and burned our fingers on the hot metal many times. It also brings back memories of doodlebugs (V1's) a really frightening experience when the engines stopped and even worse with the slient V2's."
 
"Very interesting exhibition - let's hope it grows and grows!"
 
"Very interesting and educational."

"Born in September 1943, I was too young to remember the seond World War conflict. As a youngster I watched the black and white and later colour glamorised cinema coverage of the Battle of Britain etc. Now older & hopefully wizer! the bravery & dogged determination of our forefathers who fought to protect their kids and loved ones makes me feel very humble."
