Holiday company holds workshop in de Havilland Aircraft Museum

First published in News by

A tour operator recently held a volunteer day at the de Havilland Aircraft Museum.

Tui/Thomson chose Britain’s oldest aviation museum for their workshop last Thursday. 

A team of 25 employees swapped their day jobs at the company’s risk, safety and compliance department for the Museum in London Colney.

The staff supplemented the museum’s own volunteers and tackled a variety of jobs, from weeding and cleaning aircraft to painting aircraft cradles, polishing and showing visitors around the cockpits of various aircraft.

With major expansion plans and a recently launched £1million appeal launched to build a big new hangar, the new facilities will mean that even more volunteers are needed to help run the museum and maintain and restore its aircraft.
