Farnborough Air Sciences Museum


Test Pilots Memorial
















The Test Pilots Memorial in the Museum commemorates those Test Pilots and Crews who lost their lives whilst furthering the understanding of aircraft design and flight.

A plaque is sited on the outside of the Museum and in the Museum is a commemorative memorial volume explaining in more detail the major aspects of the relevant flight.

The Memorial was unveiled on the 1st May 2013 by Eric ‘Winkle’ Brown with the added presence of John Farley, an ex-RAE Apprentice and Test Pilot best known for his Harrier exploits.
