A unique partnership between the Royal Air Force and Lincolnshire County Council provides the public with a gateway to the home of the RAF Battle Of Britain Memorial Flight at RAF Coningsby, Lincolnshire.

Here you have the opportunity to see the Flight’s historic aircraft at close quarters and to observe the RAF BBMF technicians working to maintain them in airworthy condition.

Access to the RAF BBMF hangar is by guided tour only (admission charges apply). Hangar tours are led by knowledgeable and enthusiastic volunteer guides, who give freely their time and who, in some cases, have first-hand experience of the aircraft. Tours last approximately one and half hours.

Visitors wishing to take a tour will be treated to a unique experience. You will be shown around the hangar by knowledgeable volunteer guides, many of whom have first hand experience of the aircraft. They give freely of their time, being keen to ensure that the public appreciate this living tribute to all RAF aircrew and ground crew who gave their lives in the Second World War...
