Partnership Working 

Stow Maries Great War Aerodrome is eager to talk to you about your partnership project. We welcome STEM, Aeronautical, Historical and Curatorial projects. We welcome partnership working - a great example is Project Lanoe.

Project Lanoe

In 2016/7 Stow Maries Great War Aerodrome hosted a partnership project between WW1 AHT and Colchester Institute - Project Lanoe.

A grant of almost £10,000 was awarded by the Heritage Lottery Fund to Colchester Institute's Construction, Engineering and Digital Media students to design and build a faithful reproduction 1917-style andlsquo;Rocking Nacelle' simulator complete with 21st Century VR and integrated electronics. 

Now complete, this wonderful creation is operated by WW1 AHT.
