The museum tells the story of British aviation history from A-Z, starting with airships, balloons and kites through to Concorde, space vehicles and Zephyr, the world record-breaking solar-powered unmanned aircraft which can stay in the air for weeks.
FAST Museum (Farnborough Air Sciences Trust)
The FAST Museum is unique in the country as it is the only aviation museum dedicated to air sciences – the development of aviation technology at Farnborough over 100 years.
There is a full-size replica of British Army Aeroplane No 1A, the first successful piloted, powered aircraft to fly in the country in October 1908. The story of Samuel Cody, its builder and first pilot to fly in Great Britain, is told in displays.
There are also many classic jets from the Lightning to a Harrier, and the first stage of Black Arrow, the first British satellite launcher.
The museum has a coffee lounge, picnic area and shop selling an extensive range of books, models and souvenirs.
