View the days out leaflet for Yorkshire Air Museum & Allied Air Forces Memorial

The Yorkshire Air Museum is the largest independent air museum in Britain and is also the location of The Allied Air Forces Memorial.

Situated in a 20 acre parkland site on the former World War II RAF Bomber Command Station at Elvington near the City of York, the Museum/Memorial is located on the largest and most original WWII station open to the public. It was also the only base used by the French heavy bomber squadrons during the war and today includes award winning gardens, a large NAAFI style restaurant and shop, plus over 15 top class exhibitions and over 60 historic aircraft and vehicles, many of which are in working order.

In 2012 it was voted the top Specialist Attraction in Britain. The Yorkshire Air Museum & Allied Air Forces Memorial is pleased to announce the appointment of General Denis Mercier Chief of the French Air Force as its new Vice-President, who accompanies Sir Stephen Dalton Chief of the Air Staff, in the post. Former Chief of the French Air Force General Jean-Paul Paloméros remains a Vice-President following his promotion to NATO Supreme Allied Commander in September 2012 and Gneral Dennis Mercier has also taken up the position as Head of the French Air Force.
