Flight-tastic Maps

Learn more about Flight Lieutenant Dahl, then make your own ‘flight plan’ of the local village. A great activity for arty kids aged 5 and up (and for creative adults too!).

Roald Dahl flew in the RAF during WWII. Find out how he navigated and tracked his flying route - we've even got one of his flight maps in the Museum for you to take a look at.

Then use collage, co-ordinates, and your own creativity to make an artistic aerial view of the local village that you can test out in Great Missenden afterwards.
