Fly high at RAF Museum Cosford

Cosford, Shropshire

Here you can experience aviation life in wartime including the chance to see the world's oldest Spitfire.

This free attraction has 70 historic aircraft for you to see displayed in wartime hangars, as well as the award-winning National Cold War Exhibition. Explore the huge wartime hangars where you can walk under the wings of Britain’s three V-Bombers: Vulcan, Victor and Valiant, and interact with exhibits telling the story of the Cold War.

It was to RAF Cosford that the only surviving Dornier 17, salvaged from the English Channel after more than 70 years on the seabed, was brought to begin its restoration process in hydration tunnels.

Kids can get hands on with interactive hotspots and kiosks featuring the Space Race and Cuban Missile Crisis, and take off on the Black Hawk flight 4D simulator.
