The Engine Hall
A superb collection of aero engines that show how aircraft powerplants have developed.
From being small and relatively heavy in the early days through wartime ‘classics’ such as the Wright Cyclone and the Rolls-Royce Merlin, to the hugely powerful gas turbines such as the Rolls-Royce Avon.
The Avionics Room
The Avionics room highlights the role of the navigator and the development of electronic guidance equipment.
The room has exhibits of survival equipment, ejector seats, the Martin Baker story, and an area dedicated to Royal Observer Corps.
The Crosby Room
Enter the museum’s display rooms and step back to the 40’s through an air raid shelter, taking the visitor on a journey though the history of local wartime RAF Airfields.
