One-way system in operation in this display hall until further notice
The Merston Hall houses the Museum’s two world airspeed record holding aircraft – Donaldson’s Meteor and Duke’s Hunter – which are on loan from the RAF Museum by courtesy of the Trustees, as is the Supermarine Swift which is displayed next to the Hunter.
A Canberra cockpit is also on display together with full size replicas of the Spitfire prototype K5054 and a Hurricane. Here too can be seen cutaway jet engines, an exhibition of aircraft propellers, three of the museum’s flight simulators, an exhibition of flying helmets, several ejector seats and many other unique exhibits, all in a hangar-styled hall.
