RAF Museum - '100 objects for 100 years'

A behind the scenes look as the RAF Museum prepares to open a new exhibition next year in Hendon...

The RAF Museum is busy developing its London site and preparing exhibits for the RAF Centenary next year. One of the areas in the new exhibition will be a timeline covering 100 years of the RAF. Like the exhibition itself, it will not be looking to tell the whole history of the RAF but will be taking events, some major, some minor and placing them in the appropriate position on the timeline.

Accompanying the timeline will be a number of models showing how aircraft of a similar role have evolved, and a miscellany of roughly 100 smaller objects highlighting many varied aspects of the RAF. It covers technical equipment, (some high tech, some very low tech) and personal items from the mundane to the extraordinary.

A couple of weeks ago, museum staff took a long list of roughly 150 items and laid them down on a 10 metre-long table to see if they could whittle the list down to about 100. This allowed them to group some of the objects together, see what items worked and which didn’t and get a general feel for what this part of the exhibition may look like.
