air warfare, through the heyday of jet aviation right up to
the workings of the modern-day Queen Elizabeth Class
Carriers. As well as the Carrier Experience, there is the
refurbished Falklands exhibition which commemorates the 40th
anniversary of the conflict. This features ‘Humphrey’ the
famous Mk3 Wessex helicopter.
