Overview
More
A partnership between the Royal Air Force and Lincolnshire County Council provides public access to the home of the RAF Battle Of Britain Memorial Flight at RAF Coningsby. The RAF BBMF hangar is located within the boundaries of RAF Coningsby and viewing the flight’s historic aircraft at close quarters is available only by guided tour. You will be shown around the hangar by volunteer guides, many of whom have first hand experience of the aircraft. They give freely of their time, being keen to ensure the public appreciate this living tribute to all RAF aircrew and ground crew who gave their lives in the Second World War .

We took my old folks to visit here because it brought back memories from their era. I have to say I enjoyed it very much and we all had a very interesting afternoon. Well worth the visit.

Arrived on the day without booking. Staff were very organised and helpful. We booked on the next hangar tour- about half an hour later, which gave us time to look around inside at the exhibition first. Well laid out, plenty of information boards. The hangar...More

Arriving to see a board proclaiming the presence on the day of 5 Spitfires, a Lancaster and 2 Hurricanes we were full of anticipation, since if the flight's out at a display you can be left just with the visitor centre. It was 1532hrs and...More

RAF Coningsby is a little off the beat and track, but well worth the effort to visit. We enjoyed a wonderful guided tour through the hanger with Spitfires almost within touching distance, absolutely great, and the Lancaster is very impressive and much larger than you...More

Great morning at the museum. Really informative and good to get so close to the aircraft. Would recommend checking the flying times. We were lucky as most of the aircraft were there and one arrived too. Good to see the Typhoons Flying too
