Open Days and Events


Please note that, unless otherwise notified,

the opening times for XM496 ‘Open Days’ are:

Saturdays – 11:00 to 15:00 (11am to 3pm)

Saturdays – 11:00 to 16:00 (11am to 4pm) starting in April

PRIVATE – indicates not open to the public



When XM496 is closed, visitors, at their discretion, are welcome to inspect the aircraft  externally but should take extra care venturing underneath the aircraft as there are numerous projections that can cause serious injury. Parents are requested to keep children under control at all times and discourage them from climbing the main steps which are effectively ‘out of bounds’ as indicated by the barrier.
