Thanks to a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund, FAST has now been able to restore and digitise nearly 300 films from our historic archive. Most of these films document the trials and testing, and remarkable research and development, that took place at the Royal Aircraft Establishment. They were among the thousands of artefacts that were salvaged in the very early days of FAST, and have since been entrusted to our care. This funding now makes it possible to share this important heritage with the wider public.

The year-long HLF Project, which began in June 2023, has seen a wave of activity from many of our dedicated volunteers working along with various suppliers and consultants funded by the grant. A significant part of the project has been the collaboration with Farnborough College of Technology.
