Helicopter Museum Hunts

Chopper Spotter

Help us find the hidden hovering helicopters! Come to the Air Force Museum and search for different coloured helicopters. Can you find them all? Look carefully and you might see one or two real ones as well! When you’ve finished, return to base to get your well-deserved reward. 

Wingless Wonders

Air Force helicopters have lots of different jobs to do. Visit the Air Force Museum and match the helicopter outlines with the correct pictures of their jobs – you may be surprised at how amazingly useful our helicopters are! When you’ve finished, claim your hard-earned prize from the reward basket. 

Rotary Roundup

Explore the Air Force Museum to discover the different part names of rotary aircraft (helicopters). Find and record the parts to complete the diagram before using your super-sleuth skills to answer the final question. Job done? Make your way back to base to collect your reward.
