Located at East Fortune Airfield, halfway between Haddington and East Linton, the National Museum of Flight has a varied collection of aircraft and aviation paraphernalia such as parachutes and radar equipment. The museum takes part in festivals and hosts an annual air show and a varied events programme throughout the year.
Head off on a journey of discovery at the National Museum of Flight, East Lothian, home to one of Europe's best collections of aircraft. Learn about the history of aviation from the First World War to the present day and get on board Scotland's Concorde.
At the museum you will find some of the most iconic aircraft ever to take to the skies, from the legendary Spitfire and the Cold War Vulcan bomber, to the Hawk, flown by the world-famous Red Arrows, and of course Scotland's Concorde. Get on board this supersonic aircraft to discover what transatlantic flight was like for its passengers and crew and learn more about its legacy.
