Digital Resources

Biomimicry

Biomimicry is design that is inspired by nature. The aviation industry has often looked to nature for inspiration and to help solve problems, from simply wanting to fly like birds to using cutting edge technology to help pilots see in the dark. Follow the digital trail and discover what animals, aircraft and the RAF have in common. 

Sound trail

Our sound trail can be accessed using a mobile phone or tablet. Listen to the sounds and try to locate the objects around the hangars.
