Following a successful partnership over the past 10 months, Landmarc Support Services (Landmarc) has consolidated its support for the Army Flying Museum in Hampshire by sponsoring another series of Lockdown Lectures and becoming a Corporate Partner of the museum.
In collaboration with The Gurkha Museum, REME Museum and Soldiers of Oxfordshire Museum, the Lockdown Lectures provide informative and educational presentations on the history of British military aviation, with past events covering life as a ground crewman in the Cold War and discussions on Operation Granby in the first Gulf War, as well as seminars on a mix of historic fixed and rotary wing aircraft.
The Army Flying Museum started the online lectures when they were unable to open to visitors, to enable those who still wanted to learn more about British military aviation to continue to do so from the safety of their own homes. With support from Landmarc, the Lockdown Lectures have been a huge success, with thousands tuning in over the last few months.
The demand for these online events has encouraged the museum to continue the lectures into their fifth series, which will now be held live at the museum, available to watch online afterwards.
Mark Neill, Managing Director at Landmarc says: “We wanted to lend our support to the Army Flying Museum after the undeniable impact of lockdown restrictions and it’s been great to sponsor such a fantastic and well-received initiative. The demand for these lectures has been outstanding, and we are privileged to be able to continue our partnership for another series as well as becoming an official Corporate Partner of the museum.”
Paul Beaver, Trustee of the Army Flying Museum comments: “We are thrilled that Landmarc has decided to renew its support for our next series of lectures and become a Corporate Partner. We’ve been truly astonished by the amount of people logging on to learn more about the history of British military aviation and we would like to extend our gratitude to Landmarc for directly supporting the vital work of the museum and our post pandemic recovery.”
The next live lecture and Q&A will be presented by Paul and will take place at 7pm on 20 September. It will look at 100 years of fixed-wing aircraft used by the British Army, including the Royal Flying Corps, the Air Observation Posts, the Glider Pilot Regiment and the Army Air Corps, as well as the men and women who flew and maintained these machines.
The Army Flying Museum is the only museum in the world that tells the extraordinary story of British Army flying. It holds an extensive collection, charting 100 years of the British Army in the air, with over 35 iconic aircrafts on display, making it the perfect place to explore the fascinating history of army aviation.
