London's Hangar 6 will be closed 21 September while we update this exhibition.

Webbing Paste

A little tin of Webbing Cleaning Paste was an integral part of everyday life for every new RAF recruit and one which if not used properly could see said recruit up on a charge. View this video to find out what the verb ‘Blanco’ing’ means.

Next Saturday, on 30 June, we will be opening, after a multi-million pound redevelopment of our London site, 3 new permanent exhibitions including ‘RAF Stories: The First 100 Year 1918-2018’ where you can find on display one of these infamous tins.

Just one of the 100 reasons to visit the RAF Museum this summer.
