Battle of Britain Hall, Hendon ~ *UPDATE*

Post by Pen Pusher » Tue Jan 26, 2016 6:57 pm

As part of the RAFM@Hendon plans to celebrate the Royal Air Force Centenary in 2018, the Museum is conducting a condition survey which involves partly dismantling its aircraft around the site. They have started in the Battle of Britain Hall, which goes on until November, and last Saturday I had a wander down. Reminiscent of war bird maintenance at Duxford with panels open and bits detached. I shall keep adding to this as I shall probably have frequent visits to Colindale on my various trips down to London.

Since my last visit, the wings of the Hurricane, Spitfire and Me109 have been removed so just a few record shots.

Meanwhile in the main museum building there have been a couple of changes. Electric light has been installed in the Halifax cockpit and the area around the Tornado/Buccaneer has been cleared and the blue carpet has been pulled up.

From RAFM Facebook
This Friday we will be making a major announcement about the future of the the RAF Museum at Horseguards' Parade.

On site we will have on display the three aircraft that are found in the Museum's RAF Centenary Project logo, a Sopwith Snipe, a Mk 16 Spitfire and a Typhoon Jet.

Below you can see the first two of these aircraft arriving at Horseguards' Parade this morning having set off from the Museum at about 6.30 am.

As one of our Facebook Fans it would be great if you could be there...and if you turn up wearing something red, we'll give you a small gift in return (subject to stock) We intend to make the announcement around 2.45 pm and this will be followed by a Typhoon Flypast over Horseguards' Parade.

We'll post more photographs over the next couple of days of our preparations at Horseguards. If you can make it on Friday, we would suggest that you get there for 2pm. If you can't make it, don't worry, all will be revealed later on Friday. ‪#‎NamesOnAPlane‬ ‪#‎NotAnAprilFool‬
