One of the areas in the new exhibition will be a timeline covering 100 years of the RAF.

Like the exhibition itself, it will not be looking to tell visitors the whole history of the RAF but will be taking events, some major, some minor and placing them in the appropriate position on the timeline.

Accompanying the timeline will be a number of tactile models showing visitors how aircraft of a similar role have evolved (representative models can be seen in the photos) and a miscellany of roughly 100 smaller objects highlighting many varied aspects of the RAF.

It covers technical equipment, (some high tech, and some very low tech) and personal items from the mundane to the extraordinary.
