Until Feb 2006. Running at Londons Science Museum Inside the Spitfire celebrates Britains most famous fighter plane of the Second World War on the 65th anniversary of the Battle of Britain. From its ground-breaking design masterpiece to its propaganda value as a symbol of hope and resistance the plane has become the default image of the Second World War effort in Britain. The main attraction is a Spitfire loaned by the RAF Museum installed on the Science Museum's second floor and completely stripped down to its original structure. The installation offers museum visitors a never to be repeated experience of the planes spectacular design and engineering achievements. To aid the experience the Museum is featuring the letters, mementos, medals, photos and other artefacts of those who built , flew and maintained the aircraft in its day. Admission is free. Mon-Sun 10.00-18.00.
