This is a truly breathtaking display of the RAF aircraft that were on alert during the many years of the Cold War. With RAF units based in Germany and so many U.S. bases in the UK this was an exciting period where we were prepared to take on the Russian Bear. The planes displayed here kept him out and what used to be top secret can just about be touched now. This is a very modern building and there's lots of daylight inside. One doesn't need to use the flash in taking pictures.
Good facilities, good catering and a shop well worth visiting. Ample parking space and a number of impressive aircraft outside that would be too big to take cover. Full credits to the architect who designed this building, in Holland a new Netherlands Air Force museum is under construction that got its ideas from Cosford.
