Hangar 42 - Blackpool Airport

Hangar 42

Hangar 42 is located at Blackpool Airport, Lancashire.  Constructed in 1939 for the RAF at the outbreak of WW2, Hangar 42 was home to various RAF and Polish Squadrons, operating night fighter cover for Preston and Merseyside Docklands. 

Hangar 42 has been relatively untouched since 1945 and retains many original features.  The ancillary rooms at the side of the building have been cleared and restored with period features and furniture. Open every Tuesday from the Easter School Holiday to the end of October from 10:00 - 16:00 (final entry 15:30)

The Visitor Centre has been developed to ensure that the sights, sounds and equipment of the era are brought back to life to give our visitors a valuable insight to the realities of fighting on the Ground, as well as in the Air during the dark years of WW2.  Adults £3.50 10's - 16's £2.50, under 10's go free. Unfortunately No pets are allowed.

The Hangar has ample space for filming and has access to water, power and facilities such as toilets and catering, with secure parking. This is a secure site, so filming can be completed away from the Public and equipment is safe within the Hangar.   Competitive hire rates for both TV and Film productions.

Our Aircraft, Spitfire flight simulator and various RAF wartime vehicles are also available for hire.  Please email any questions to enquiries@fcmbpl.co.uk
