GRAHAME-WHITE FACTORY & WATCH OFFICE
This building is the UK's first aircraft factory, purpose-built, here at Hendon by Claude Grahame-White in 1917. It includes the surviving quarter of the original factory, which was carefully relocated onto the Museum site. It also has all the original metal roofing, doors, windows and other fittings.
MILESTONES OF FLIGHT
The Milestones of Flight building was opened in 2003, 100 years after the first powered flight by Orville Wright. High viewing areas and state-of-the-art interactive technology take you through some of the most important milestones in aviation history.
THE BOMBER HALL
The Bomber Hall exhibition follows the development of the bomber from its first appearance in World War One to the highly sophisticated machines of today. When you visit RAF Museum London you can also find out about the achievements of RAF Bomber Command and the U.S. Army Air Forces in World War Two.
The Historic Hangars are listed buildings that were part of the old Hendon Aerodrome, the cradle of British aviation. They have been linked together by a new building that was created to house part of the Museum's collection of fighter aircraft. This is dedicated to Sir Sidney Camm, the designer of the Hawker Typhoon that sits in pride of place.
