Located on 20 acres of parkland, this is the country's largest World War II airbase that's open to the public. The independent museum showcases numerous historic aircraft, many of which are still in working condition and are certain to delight aviation enthusiasts. Planes range from early 20th-century biplanes and gliders such as the recently added Eastchurch Kitten (the only surviving one in the world) to Spitfires and other World War II–era planes and contemporary
fighter jets. There are also exhibits devoted to military vehicles, aircraft weaponry, and Royal Air Force uniforms. The museum is home to a memorial and gardens commemorating British and allied servicemembers who lost their lives in conflict.
