April events at RAF Museum, Hendon

April 1, 2009toApril 30, 2009

Happy Birthday, RAF!
4 April – 5 April
The Royal Air Force was formed on 1st April 1918. To celebrate the 91st anniversary of its foundation, we will have a series of re-enactors on-site in our main halls who will be at hand to talk about the contribution that the people they represent made to the development of the R.A.F and the defence of the U.K. Groups will include members of the Royal Flying Corps, 1930s airmen, World War II Fighter Aces, plus test pilots from the 60s and 70s.

Easter Identity
10 April – 13 April
Children can take on the identity of a member of the Royal Air Force with our Identity Trail. On completion collect your certificate and find out more about your chosen individual.
On Easter Saturday and Sunday, each child completing the identity trail will receive an Easter egg.

St George’s and ANZAC Days
25 April – 26 April
As both of these days fall within the same week, we thought you might appreciate the opportunity to celebrate them both in the same weekend. As part of our St George’s Day celebration children can make their own dragon to take home and learn more about English RAF personnel on our trail and from our display in Aeronauts.
At the same time, to commemorate the contribution that our antipodean cousins made to the RAF we will also have an additional display on famous Australian and New Zealands pilots who contributed to the RAF and the development of Aviation.
Session times are 11.00 – 13.00 and 14.00 – 16.00.

Address:
Grahame Park Way, London
 NW9 5LL
