We Are a Charity

We Are a Charity

If you have already booked a Flying Legends ticket, we would be grateful if you would consider donating the cost of your ticket. IWM relies on the income we receive from ticket purchases from our branches and major events to continue to tell stories of remarkable human resilience, humour and togetherness in extraordinary times.

The Fighter Collection uses donations to maintain and conserve arguably Europe’s finest collection of vintage aircraft from the golden age of piston engine design and performance.
