Embark on an exciting journey through aviation history with our brand new audio trail at the RAF Museums! Let the fascinating stories of courage, innovation, and adventure captivate your imagination as you explore our exhibits and legendary aircraft.

With enchanting narration that brings history to life, you'll hear the hum of engines, the buzz of radio chatter, and the tales of the brave men, women and animals who made a difference during WW2.

You will be guided through our audio trail by Woof Commander Antis The Dog and Flight Lieutenant Percy The Parachuting Penguin, inspired by the real life trusted companion of legendary RAF Air Gunner Robert Bozdech and by the lucky mascot of Flight Lieutenant Stan Chapman. Percy is prim, proper and always ready for action. Antis is fun-loving, enthusiastic and always by your side when you need him. Together, they will take you on a fun and exciting audio-journey outwith the realms of possibility and into the heart of thrilling stories from D-Day, Bomber Command, Spitfire Cockpits and much more.
