Battle Of Britain Memorial Flight Visitor Centre
The Battle of Britain Memorial Flight operates a Lancaster, five Spitfires, two Hurricanes, two Chipmunks, and a Dakota. In 1986, under a unique arrangement between Lincolnshire County Council and the Royal Air Force, it became possible to view these historic aircraft at their base at RAF Coningsby.
These aircraft are no museum pieces - they are all still flying and can be seen at a variety of air shows in the summer months.
Since 1986, the Visitor Centre has welcomed over 300,000 people, all of whom have received a guided tour.
Many others visit to view the permanent gallery and temporary exhibitions, or to make purchases in our excellent shop. Visitors, who take a guided tour, have the rare opportunity to visit the flight on its home territory, where you can watch technicians who have learnt skills all but lost, working on these magnificent aircraft.
