The Royal Air Force Museum at Cosford helps to preserve the history of aviation for future generations. The documentation of the history of the Royal Air Force is an integral part of museum's work which is sponsored by the Department for Culture.
The museum at Cosford was opened in 1979 prior to which it had been used to house a collection of old aircraft. The British Airways collection was also housed here until the company withdrew funding.
A variety of aircraft are on permanent display here and not all are British. Visitors can see German, American and Japanese aircraft as well as some exhibits from Argentina.
Additional features include a missile collection, transport section and aircraft engines. A good family day out or a plane spotters paradise.
