The only Allied Forces memorial in Europe, Yorkshire Air Museum is supported by over 4,000 registered friends of the museum from around the world. The museum aims to educate and preserve the history of flight. Visit the collection of over 50 aircraft from around the world, including machines from as far back as 1853 and as modern as the GR4 Tornado. The museum's site covers over 2.8 hectares (7 acres) of managed landscape, part of a sustainability program called the "Nature of Flight." This large area is used on "Thunder Days" to demonstrate maneuvers with still-operating aircraft. You'll find a printable map of the museum's acreage on its website.
