The Federation of Sidecar Clubs

will be holding a Day Meet at the Jet Age Museum on 7 October 2018

Meet at the Museum at any time from 10:30 am (we will be there all day!).

Entry to the Museum is free.

There is a café, but please note that it only serves drinks and cakes.

The Jet Age Museum Meteor Business Park, Cheltenham Road East, Gloucester GL2 9QL

The jet engine was designed by British engineering genius Sir Frank Whittle (1907–1996). His son Ian is a patron of Jet Age Museum. Britain’s first jet plane, the Gloster E28/39, powered by Whittle’s revolutionary invention, first left the ground on 8 April 1941 at the Gloster factory-airfield between Gloucester and Cheltenham. Its official first flight was at RAF Cranwell, Lincolnshire, on 15 May 1941. The original aeroplane can be seen in London’s Science Museum.

Jet Age Museum volunteers have built a full-size replica which is proudly on display. Other Gloster-built aircraft are currently on view, such as examples of Britain’s first jet fighter, the Meteor, and the Cold War-era Javelin and a fully-detailed reproduction 1925 Gamecock biplane. Ongoing restoration projects include rebuilding an RAF Gladiator biplane which crashed in Norway in 1940 and a late World War Two Gloster-built Hawker Typhoon.

Other aircraft, engines and exhibits, make interesting viewing in the display hall, while the the museum’s outstanding document and photographic archive, are now housed in a purpose built facility.
