Southampton has a rich aviation history - between 1908 and the 1960's, twenty-six aircraft companies set up in the area. The city is home of the Spitfire and Sandringham flying boat and the museum traces of the history of these aircraft and many others. All of the exhibits are in one hangar divided into four floors and it's surprising how much can be fitted into a limited space. The early civilian pleasure flights are covered and there is a whole floor dedicated to the police force and fire service. A visit to this museum is a must for those who are interested in aviation, but even those with no particular interest will find a visit to be a worthwhile experience
