Military aircraft

Our military aircraft collection charts the changing technology of aerial warfare, from the Second World War onwards.

You can see these aircraft in our new Military Aviation Hangar, which tells the stories of aerial combat from the first use of air-to-air weapons in 1914 to drone attacks in the 21st century.
