National Museum of Flight

Smith Scott Mullan Associates

The National Museum of Flight project restored and conserved the historic Callender-Hamilton Hangars 2 and 3 and offered new interpretation of the aviation collections within. The hangars are part of the former First and Second World War airfield at East Fortune, which is a Scheduled Monument. The restoration of the hangars and the improvements to environmental conditions within them, allows for the display of supporting objects currently in store, and provides a more suitable environment for the preservation of the national aviation collections. Hangar 2 houses the Museums Military Aviation collection and Hangar 3 the Leisure and Pleasure Aircraft collection.
