    Personally I think this is the best military museum I've visited in Britain; there is so much to do & see here, with friendly & helpful staff, and excellent facilities. Not to be missed!

    If you visit in a week prior to airshows you can watch the practice flights. Sometimes better than the show! But the shows are worth a visit also. One of the best collections in the World.

    The best place to see old warbirds fly...airshows here are not to be missed especially if you like B-17 Flying Fortresses, Spitfires, Hurricanes and Lancasters

    Where there is a show, arrive before 9:30 to avoid the queues. Also go to the car before the show is officially over, to avoid loosing another 1-2 hours due to the traffic.

    Great new exhibits to see even when no air show on (you may be lucky to catch some though). Food and drink a bit expensive though.

    One of the best military museums I've been in UK so far. The airshow is something special, to see those warbirds flying and hearing them in the smell of gasoline, that's entirely another story!

    Bring your own food and use the eating space in Hangar 1. Food at the restaurant is ridiculously expensive!
