Help us make the Nation’s Historic Hendon collection available, through scanning and photographing documents, artwork, sculptures and photographs and writing a description about the image.
The RAF Museum collection represents the national memory of the RAF – at work and play, at war and at peace, in the UK and overseas. Approximately 3,000 documents, works of art, still and moving images relate to the Hendon site, and the stories of those who flew from or worked at Hendon from 1910 to the RAF station’s final closure in 1987. This collection plays a central part in the redevelopment of our site and our community outreach programme.
Join us for a ten week programme, work with real Hendon related historic objects, learn new skills and the various methods a museum uses to record their collection in digital form and help us to be able to share this collection more widely and easily.
