Filming & photographic aviation Location within Northern Ireland

The Ulster Aviation Society' hangars and heritage aircraft collection, located within their compound at Maze Long Kesh in Lisburn, Northern Ireland has been a frequent filming location and backdrop for numerous TV series,  documentaries and productions over the years.


From BBC documentaries, childrens' sci-fi drama series, to a punk rock music video, the two UAS hangars have a rich, authentic heritage that have provided the creative inspiration and opportunity for amazing visuals, cinematography, texture and atmosphere during each production.
