The RAF Museum develops World War One collections

Date Posted: 07/02/2013

A new gallery celebrating 100 years since the World War One conflict began will open at the RAF Museum in London next year.

Schools will be able to arrange visits to the new gallery, First Air War from next year, when its opening coincides with the 100th anniversary of the start of World War One in 2014.

World War One was the first conflict to be partly fought in the air. First Air War will use the museum’s collection of planes, letters, film and photographs to help people understand what it was like to be involved in the earliest days of the Royal Flying Corps, and how our world was changed by technology and innovation during the war.

The content of the renewed exhibition area will be shaped by public participation via the selection of its exhibits through the 100 First Air War Objects online survey and other initiatives.

Admission to the Royal Air Force Museum is free of charge.
