Hangar 1

Tiger Moth Hangar 1
Hangar 1 Temporary Closure

During recent extreme weather the Museum was subject to localised floods and lightning strikes. Unfortunately this has meant that we are still trying to resolve the technical faults and damaged caused. H1 was particularly affected and therefore we are unable to open the hangar whilst the work to rectify the situation continues. We are sorry for any inconvenience caused and please be reassured that we are doing all that we can to rectify the problem.

All air forces rely on transport and communications aircraft for moving troops and equipment. There is also a major requirement to retain a fleet of trainers to teach aircrews the wide variety of skills they must master before they can become "operational".

The Museum's collection of transport and training aircraft consists of some of the largest and smallest machines flown by the Royal Air Force. Most are concentrated in Hangar 1 but others are displayed appropriately in other exhibitions.
