Air Transport

Time/Date - 10:00 - 17:00, Tue 7 Apr 2015 - Mon 1 Dec 2025

The Ulster Folk and Transport Museum's aviation collection includes a dozen aircraft.

Northern Ireland has long been associated with aircraft production.

One of the most interesting is a Short Sealand flying boat. Designed and built in Belfast, in 1952 for a wealthy Egyptian, this twin-engined aircraft was originally fitted with a bookcase and a wine rack, in keeping with her status as a flying yacht.

Booking in advance is not necessary.
