A must for aviation buffs!

If you want to hear grown adult pilots squeal like little children, head here.

This is film director Peter Jackson’s stunning museum full of original and replica WW1 aircraft and artefacts. There is also an exhibition of WW2 aircraft known as Dangerous Skies - and you can even arrange joy flights in a variety of restored aircraft.
