General information

Our huge range of exhibits and collections span almost the entire history of flight, from the early pioneers of aviation, through both world wars and on through the Cold War era. Today we have over 60 historic aircraft and vehicles and, as time passes, we acquire newer exhibits to commemorate later conflicts or achievements, with our Post World War Two collection being one of the most comprehensive in the UK. From the 1853 Cayley Governable Parachute through to the current GR4 Panavia Tornado, the Museum represents the history of aviation in Britain.
