Discover the extraordinary story of our human ambition to take to the skies.

East Fortune played an important role as an airfield during two World Wars.

Now the National Museum of Flight hangars are packed with aircraft that reveal how flight developed from the Wright brothers to Concorde.

Explore the human fascination with flight at this protected First and Second World War airfield.

The East Fortune site itself is steeped in history. In 1919 the R34 Airship took off from East Fortune to make the first east-west transatlantic flight. Now, Hangar 4 is home to Concorde G-BOAA, the first of the British Airways Concorde fleet to fly commercially. Visit the Concorde Experience and follow the amazing story of supersonic passenger flight.

The other hangars display a rich collection of civil and military aircraft. Come and discover some of the most extraordinary machines in the world. Explore the story of our ambition to take to the skies and find out how flight has changed our world.
