Essex Cornerstone Club is excited to present this rare opportunity to get up close to the legendary Apache attack helicopter, including a chance to experience inside the cockpit!
Royal Air Force Station Wattisham or more simply RAF Wattisham is a former Royal Air Force station located in East Anglia just outside the village of Wattisham, south of Stowmarket in Suffolk. During the Cold War, it was a major front-line air force base before closing in 1993 and is now operated by the British Army as Wattisham Airfield. Wattisham Airfield is the biggest centralised operational Army Airfield in the UK.
The day consists of a presentation on the Apache, followed by a visit to a hanger and a chance to get up close and personal with the helicopter, including a cockpit experience. Following this, you will have the opportunity to explore the museum on site which tells the history of the airfield, then off to the Officers Mess to finish the morning off with a curry lunch!
We will be holding a raffle on the day and any money raised will go to support local charities such as Behind the Wire, ASD Saturday Club, and Fresh Start New Beginnings.
As you can see this action packed event is definitely not one to be missed! So book in early to avoid disappointment, Cornerstone Club members get a special reduced rate.
