The Scottish National Museum of Flight is located about 45 minutes drive to the east of Edinburgh, at an airfield called East Fortune. The airfield was actively used during both World Wars and it now houses a rare selection of aircraft and flying related objects.

There are several hangers with different kinds of historic aircraft in them. From the original Concorde to more modern fighter jets like Nimrod. You can also see where the parachutes were kept in the past and have fun in the science of flight shed where you can find out why airplanes fly and try your hand at the interactive machines. Would you make a good pilot?
