Fortunes of War Uncover the story of service at East Fortune from RAF crew, photographs, film and unique artefacts. Our new exhibition presents the vivid human story of this historic military airfield on which the National Museum of Flight stands. Using personal testimony, photographs, film and unique artefacts, it tells the story of the human experience of service at East Fortune. What was the purpose of East Fortune airfield? What was it like to serve there? See wings from an East Fortune Sopwith Cuckoo and the original painted gate from the Royal Naval Air Station. View objects from 'R34', East Fortune's record-breaking airship, which flew to North America and back in the first ever transatlantic crossing. Discover how the airfield has changed during the years with our interactive map, navigate an airship to find the enemy submarine and watch historic film footage. Get a first-hand look at what life was like on an active airbase with models, aircraft parts, uniforms and flying equipment. This new exhibition is supported by: Exploring the interactive map in Fortunes of War.
