Left to right: Henri Mignet HM-14 Pou du Ciel 'Flying Flea' (unmarked). The original HM-14 'Flying Flea', designed in 1934 by Henri Mignet was probably the first home-built to be offered to the public for home construction. Following a number of fatal accidents and the discovery of aerodynamic design errors the French authorities banned it from flying in 1936, the British authorities following suit in 1937. The HM-293 was more streamlined and had a more powerful engine than the original HM.14 and many were sold as home-builds in the 1960s.

The museum has a hangar which it uses as a workshop behind some trees adjacent to the main hangar which houses some of the collection on display. Outside this hangar are the following airframes which the museum is intending to restore or use for parts. It was made apparent that photography was not allowed in this hangar for a reason not properly explained to me.
