The Fleet Air Arm Museum has been actively collecting aircraft relevant to the story of Royal Naval Aviation since the Museum opened in 1964.
Today the collection stands at 102 airframes that span the history of naval aviation from 1909 to the present day. The collection also houses Concorde 002, the first British prototype Concorde to fly. Concorde 002 has been configured on display to allow visitors to go on-board and walk through the inside of the aircraft.
Within the collection there are 21 aircraft types that are totally unique in existence, and cannot be seen anywhere else in the world.
