Ulster Aviation Collection

A unique array of 25 historic aircraft and exhibits celebrating Northern Ireland’s aviation heritage. See commercial, Cold War and World War 2 aircraft, stroll among the displays, observe restorations in progress in a historic hangar. It’s all the work of a small army of enthusiasts, dedicated since 1968 to rebuilding and preserving an impressive collection of airplanes, helicopters and aviation artefacts.

Location: Halftown Road, off the A3 (Moira Road) at the western edge of Lisburn, in the new Balmoral Park development site at Maze/Long Kesh.
Website: www.ulsteraviationsociety.org. We are also on Facebook.
