Farnborough Air Sciences Museum
Film & Sound
Fine Art & Drawings
A selection of experimental and production aircraft adorns the outside display areas of the Museum. Space is limited so the range is restricted to those types used for flight trials at Farnborough, or used as test specimens in the laboratories.
The RAE Hawker Hunter (WV383), nicknamed Hecate – Lady of the Night – was used for expanding the RAF’s night and poor weather operational flying capabilities. FAST has a complete cockpit with all the original display systems to allow high-speed low-level flight at night.
One of the last operational Lynx HA5 stands in complete form alongside a Harrier T4, also in complete form. A fine example of the English Electric Lightning T5, which is on loan to the Museum, stands as the gate guard.
