Have a great day out at this exciting Museum where everyone can enjoy the latest temporary exhibition.
Discover all the details on the Sussex D-Day airfields and the fighter aircraft that flew from them. You can also learn about some of the pilots who flew and fought on that day, 75 years ago.
Supporting the exhibition will be archive film and a programme of talks.
On D-Day, much of the aerial fighter support for the landings was conducted from Sussex established airfields and temporary Advanced Landing Grounds. The Allies enjoyed complete air superiority, with a total of 1,547 fighter sorties flown over the British/Canadian and American beaches.
Sussex was also important for the operational control of the aerial activities. This was conducted from the RAF Tangmere Sector Operations Room set up in the College Hall at Bishop Otter College (now part of the University) in Chichester.
