    We are currently offering enthusiasts and visitors the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to 'get under the skin' of our iconic Battle of Britain Collection.

    The Museum is conducting an 'open' condition survey of our aircraft as part of our on-going plans to commemorate and celebrate the RAF's Centenary in 2018.

    The first of these surveys is now underway in our Battle of Britain Hall and will last until November with visitors welcome to see the 'nuts and bolts' under the panels as qualified technicians from the Michael Beetham Conservation Centre at our Cosford site assess each aircraft.

    Pictured is the Museum's Supermarine Spitfire Mk I, X4590, Museum Accession number 78/A/872, as captured by our resident photographer Iain Duncan.

    Now that's a once in a life-time chance!
    Too bad the UK seems so distant from the other side of the pond. :(
