Just east of Edinburgh, the National Museum of Flight will be tucking up its aircraft for winter hibernation this weekend, giving you the best chance to get up close and personal wth some of aerospace’s greatest designs.
Discover the stories behind one of Europe’s best collections of aircraft and the people who worked on them through some incredible displays and fascinating interviews across two massive aircraft hangers – one for civil and another for military craft.
The military hangar in particular examines the roles that aircraft have played in conflict throughout the 20th and 21st centuries. and how design and technology have advanced to suit – including the world-famous Spitfire, the oldest surviving Harrier jump jet and the Tornado F3.
