Hangar 1 – Currently Closed

????????????????????????????????????

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.

Hangar 1 is currently closed to enable our team to operate safe social distancing measures in our other hangars.

Wearing of Facemasks

Please note:

We strongly recommend that all visitors wear a face covering when visiting our galleries, shop and restaurant* unless they were previously exempt from doing so. You will not need to wear one when outside in our green spaces, unless it makes you more comfortable to do so. We would also ask that when in our buildings that our visitors be aware of others around them and where possible maintain a social distance of 1 metre. 

*Except when seated.
