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. Join us today and let your imagination fly! New attractions Fantastic Flight and Fortunes of War let you get hands-on with flying! Visit the UK's only Boeing 707 and see what it was like to fly with the stars in our Jet Age exhibition.
