THE Boscombe Down Aviation Collection (BDAC) based at Old Sarum airfield will mark the centenary of the start of the First World War on the 4 August 1914 by unveiling an art installation in their hangar on Sunday (3) at 4pm.

BDAC received a Heritage Lottery Fund grant of £3,700 in April this year, to mount an exhibition to commemorate the conflict and install the art work in the hangar.

The installation, by artist Jennifer Stokes, is inspired by the replica First World War bi-plane which BDAC has in its collection.
