Museum of Flight (Scotland)


East Fortune, United Kingdom (GB)
The Museum of Flight is an aerospace museum at East Fortune Airfield, East Fortune, East Lothian, Scotland. It was founded in 1975 and is now one of the National Museums of Scotland.

Aircraft at the museum include an Avro Vulcan V-bomber (serial XM597) used in the Falklands War and a former Dan-Air De Havilland Comet 4c airliner (registration G-BDIX). Following the removal of Concorde from service, British Airways donated "Alpha Alpha", one of their Concorde fleet, registration G-BOAA. This now forms the centrepiece of the "Concorde Experience" exhibition which opened on 16 March 2005.

The Museum has an example of the Blue Streak IRBM, which was used as the basis for the first European space launcher. There is also an extensive collection of early radar equipment.
