The Hawker Demon was flown by 608 Squadron at Thornaby between 1937 and 1939. This propeller was rescued from a field in 1957 and passed via the Air Training Corps to the local council to be mounted in the library since 1969. It has recently been restored and remounted.
Thornaby Aerodrome was developed in 1930, although the area known as Foggins Field had been used for flying previously. The aerodrome closed in 1958 with the town of Thornaby being developed over the site. One small scrap of the runway remain and acts at the car park to the National Reserve & Patriotic Club
