Display Aircraft Stands
Because of the nature of static display, wheels and tyres of the Museum's aircraft require slight elevation to ensure their lifespan is maximised. In the case of some of our aircraft, new tyres are unobtainable, so protecting their existing tyres is vital. To achieve this, Museum volunteers have designed and built a selection of stands for the Museum's static display aircraft, from simple stands for light aircraft such as the Tiger Moth and Avro 504K, to self elevating masterpieces capable of supporting the 16-tonne weight of the F-4 Phantom. As each aircraft has very different requirements, each set of stands is custom-designed, and our team is currently working through all of the aircraft on display.
