Recommended length of visit: 2-3 hours
Owner description: A partnership between the Royal Air Force and Lincolnshire County Council provides public access to the home of the RAF Battle Of Britain Memorial Flight at RAF Coningsby. The RAF BBMF hangar is located within the boundaries of RAF Coningsby and viewing the flight’s historic aircraft at close quarters is available only by guided tour. You will be shown around the hangar by volunteer guides, many of whom have first hand experience of the aircraft. They give freely of their time, being keen to ensure the public appreciate this living tribute to all RAF aircrew and ground crew who gave their lives in the Second World War .

A really good one and a half hours guided tour of the hanger and the aircraft, we saw Spitfires, Lancaster Bomber. Hurricanes and seeing the new Euro Fighters flying around the airfield which was a bonus. Also, they have a lot of information to take in at the Visitors Centre which you do not have to pay for the admission only the guided tour.

loved the intense knowledge of our guide about all the planes and the people who have flown them during and since the second Worl War.

Unfortunately the Lancaster we were perticularly interested to see was being tested on the opposite side of the airield, so we didn't get to see it
