Historic Flight Over Beverley

We’ll take you on a tour of the workshop before taking you on a historical flight to learn more about the history of the Beverley. We’ll fly in a 1939 radial engine aircraft. This is the only type of its kind in the world and we will fly you over Brough where the Beverley was manufactured, take in the dramatic views of the Humber Bridge and then on towards Fort Paull where the XB-259 landed for the very last time.
