Welcome to Blackpool Airport Hangar 42 Visitor Centre - home of the Royal Air Force during WW2, know as RAF Squires Gate base. Although we are a limited Company, we operate on a not-for-profit basis, maneed fully by volunteers. All monies raised supports our various restoration and development projects, helping keep these rare WW2 RAF artefacts, memories and experiences on Public view.
We do not receive any external funding and this private heritage collection relies fully on Public support and donations.
In 2022 we launch our Capital works fundraising campaign to build a new £400,000 education centre extension to our 1939 Belman Hangar. Your visit and support is appreciated.
