The RAF in an Age of Uncertainty 1980–today

For the last forty years the Royal Air Force has been in constant deployment, whether assisting our allies abroad or providing humanitarian aid across the globe. In this exhibition, we examine the RAF’s recent history from the Falklands Conflict to the modern day, and look at how technological change during this time has enabled the RAF to be agile, adaptable and responsive to the challenges that it has met during this period. Explore personal stories through film, audio, images and text.

Opportunities to get hands-on include:

  • Tactile models of aircraft
  • Test your knowledge of the 80s, 90s,00s and today with pop culture quizzes
  • Leave your comments on our timeline wall.

This exhibition is supported by:
