Over 70 aircraft of international importance are housed at the RAF Museum in three Wartime Hangars and within the £12.5 million National Cold War Exhibition. From the world’s oldest Spitfire and a Lincoln Bomber, to the Comet 1A and Gnat T1, previously used by the Red Arrows. The engine and missile collections are arguably one of the finest in the world.
