This week we welcomed the arrival of a fantastic RAF Red Arrows Hawk T.1A to the National Museum of Flight – the very same aircraft that led the Red Arrows flight with Concorde over the opening of the Scottish Parliament in 1999.

Our Hawk is decorated in the livery of the iconic Red Arrows who are known and loved all around the world for their incredible formation flying and breathtaking aerial displays. Visit the Hawk in the Concorde hangar.

Tim Peake's Soyuz spacecraft arrives at the National Museum of Scotland on Thursday 17 May. As the only Scottish venue on the spacecraft's tour, this is an unmissable chance to see the capsule that returned Tim Peake to Earth following his six months on the International Space Station.
