Date of visit: September 2019.
Royal Air Force Museum Hendon which opened in November 1972, is located on the site of the former Hendon Aerodrome in the borough of Barnet, North West London. In 2018 the museum had a revamp with visitors able to connect through simulators and other interactive experiences. The aircraft displayed are located in six hangars, each with a theme depicting an era of aviation in the Royal Air Force.
Not all aircraft on display are shown here. As I was only visiting for a day time was limited. Also a small number of aircraft were being renovated and were covered with protective sheets, while others had obstacles in front of them or were positioned in such a manner that I was unable to get a satisfactory photo. Another visit in the future will be required.
