RAF Museum on show

With 2018 marking the centenary of the Royal Air Force, more than 1,000 veterans and current serving personnel have had an exclusive preview of the newly-transformed RAF Museum in Hendon, London.

The award-winning complex will formally reopen on Saturday 30 June with a new Hangar 1 exhibit housing two new galleries exploring the first 100 years of the RAF, its role today and its likely future contribution and technology (BTN 26 February).

As part of its RAF centenary programme, the museum will also be launching a new exhibit called RAF Stories, an online digital project which aims to inspire participants to share accounts of the RAF over the past 100 years.

The project is also seeking to find stories not just from former and serving personnel but also from their friends and family and others who have worked closely with the RAF in the past and the roles they played.

Event organiser Anji Patel, said: “The preview gathering, which we dubbed RAF Day, was a huge success. We want to make this an annual event and look forward to inviting everybody again next year.”
