Wings of Hope

During the Second World War, the RAF became a symbol of hope for millions of people in occupied Europe and beyond. At a time when freedom seemed far away, the RAF provided a tangible reminder that tyranny was being opposed.

Whether mounting large-scale offensives, precision raids or providing humanitarian relief, the RAF worked tirelessly towards liberation.

The operations described in this display are just a small sample of the RAF's work during the Second World War. They highlight the diverse nature of RAF operations and demonstrate that liberation comes in many forms.
