Feathers and Flight Trail 

Feathers and Flight Trail

Date: Friday 10 –  Saturday 11 August 2018
Time: 10.00am – 6.00pm 
Cost: £1.00

Families will need to be eagle-eyed as they walk through the museum to go in search of the answers to our trail. 

The clues will be nestled among the aircraft on display and will highlight the close relationship between aircraft design and birds.

Look out for the ‘Feathers and Flight’ boards and jot down the answers on your trail sheet - once complete, why not enter our Facebook competition by colouring in the RAF badge on the reverse (which also features an Eagle), cut it out to create a badge and share a photo on our page to be in with a chance of winning a £20.00 gift voucher to spend in the RAF Museum Shop**.
So, if you have any eagle-eyed youngsters in your family and want to take part, all you need to do is pick up your trail sheet from the Hangar One on arrival for just £1.00

The pop-up falconry will be positioned outdoors in our beautiful newly landscaped museum site. Visitors will be able to get up close and meet the birds and learn more about their incredible capabilities, their daily routines and special diets as well as some of their quirky likes and dislikes.  There will be two fantastic flying displays at 1.00pm and 4.00pm on both days, where the true beauty of the birds will come to life.
