Yorkshire Air Museum and Allied Air Memorial
The Yorkshire Air Museum & Allied Air Memorial is a living memorial to all the Allied Air Forces personnel who operated from Yorkshire during the Second World War, and particularly the thousands of young people who gave their lives in that conflict. We aim to be relevant to present day generations by explaining in a realistic way what life was like on a typical wartime bomber station, as well as displaying the history of aviation.
A fascinating and dynamic museum, authentically based on a World War Two Bomber Command Station. The unique displays include the original Control Tower, Air Gunners' Collection, Barnes Wallis' prototype 'bouncing bomb' and a superb Airborne Engineers Display.
Our rapidly expanding collection of historical aircraft depicts aviation from its earliest days, to World War Two with the awesome and unique Halifax rebuild through to post war jets.
Originally a grass airfield, RAF Elvington was completely rebuilt with three hardened runways in 1942, as a sub-station of RAF Pocklington. Grouped with RAF Melbourne, the three airfields became known as '42 Base', within 4 Group. .
