Museum Stories is a set of downloadable trails to use while visiting the National Museum of Flight.

Museum Stories was produced by members of the local East Lothian community, who selected their highlights and shared personal stories of the National Museum of Flight, East Fortune Airfield.

Local community groups were invited to attend the museum and given a tour by staff.  The staff then facilitated them in discovering more about the objects and areas of museum site that particularly interested them.   

The end result is a set of colourful tours which provide different types of visitors to the National Museum of Flight with practical information suited to their interests and requirements.

Above: Myth Too was Sheila Scott's plane that she flew solo around the world in 1966. Sheila's Piper Comanche 260B G-ATOY. Myth Too can be found in Fantastic Flight.
