Our exhibits range from the magnificent Avro Vulcan bomber through more than 30 other historic aircraft, both civil and military, aero engines and other artefacts, to a wide range of memorabilia. We're particularly proud of our collection of material relating to Sir Frank Whittle, the Coventry-born engineer who designed the jet engine which made modern high-speed aircraft and economical air travel possible. The Museum houses a heritage centre dedicated to the memory of Sir Frank and his marvellous inventive genius.
