Aviation Museums

United Kingdom

RAF Museum Hendon

Opened in 1972 by Her Majesty the Queen and located on the former RAF aerodrome at Hendon, North London,

the RAF museum has a superb collection of over 100 aircraft from around the world, as seen below.

Date of Visits: 18th November 2012 / 06th April 2013 / 04th January 2015

In 2018 the Museum underwent a major transformation to celebrate the RAF Centenary,

so some displays are likely to be different to that shown below.
