What we offer on a school trip
Why not bring your Class to the once buzzing Operations Centre in Britain's Top Secret Radar war.
Through displays and films, learn how the RAF's Air Defence operations developed from early trials with huge sound mirrors through the first of the WWII Chain Home Radars, the Cold War long range Radars right up to the latest 3D Radars in use with the RAF here in the UK and overseas. Other displays show you what it was like to be a civilian at war in the 40's or take you to the fighter station at RAF Coltishall or to the Top Secret Radar station at RAF Fylingdales, still looking, day and night, for any incoming nuclear intercontinental ballistic missiles.
