Ernst Poschenrieder

Friday, August 28th, 2009

We’re sad to announce that our old friend Ernst Poschenrieder died on 13th August 2009. He was a great friend and supporter to all of us at the Shoreham Aicraft Museum here in Kent, and will be sadly missed by his many friends here. We will always remember the many laughs we had at the great pilot reunions held at the museum over the years which Ernst used to attend.

During the Battle of Britain, Ernst flew Messerschmitt Bf 109s with 7/JG53. He was taken prisoner on 30th September 1940 after force-landing near Strood.

Museum extension taking shape update

Friday, August 7th, 2009

The wonderful extension building work is progressing rapidly and with the brick piers completed, the framework and roof has now been installed and awaits fitment of the glass. Then the flooring can be laid and other fitting out of the interior before the exciting step of placing the chosen exhibits and displays inside. The last job will be to cut the ribbon for the official opening – coming soon!
