RAF Museum London is hosting a display of thousands of paper planes in their H2 First World War galleries from 19 October 2018 – 9 January 2019.
As part of Remember RAF100, the Name Your Plane project identified 4,805 Flying Service and war graves across the length and breadth of the United Kingdom. All are represented in the exhibition with each plane bearing the name of someone who died while serving in the Flying Services during the First World War.
Thousands of children and young people from all over the country took part in the project by ‘naming’ and decorating the planes, as a personal and creative act of remembrance honouring those who died and raising awareness of their graves across the country. If your school took part in the creative commemoration, why not visit and try to find your plane?
Entrance to the museum is free, and the exhibition is open daily from 10:00.
Come and see this unique commemoration at RAF Museum from 19 October 2018 – 9 January 2019.
