POSTPONED – WW2 Bomb Disposal – Talk and Demonstration

13 July

*** Unfortunately, this interesting day has been postponed.

Please check back here and on the Wings Museum Facebook pages for updates on rescheduling. ***


This is quite an opportunity to witness the skills and ingenuity of the World War Two Bomb Disposal teams.

Back by popular demand is our bomb disposal talk by Bomb Disposal historian Steve Venus.

Let us take you back to 1940. An air raid took place in the night and the museum has an “unwelcome” visitor – a Luftwaffe 50kg bomb!

Who better than Steve and museum curator Dan to demonstrate how bomb disposal would deal with unexploded bombs in WW2.

Talks on German bombs, fuses, booby traps and Butterfly bombs – what more could you want?


Sessions are scheduled for 11:30am and 2:30pm.

There is no need to book, just be here on Saturday 13th July 2024!
