At an event today, the Royal Air Force Museum has unveiled a brand new exhibition area at its site in Cosford, West Midlands, celebrating the ground-breaking achievements of the Experimental Aircraft Programme (EAP) technology demonstrator. The occasion also marked the official launch of a major partnership between ourselves and the Museum.

A forty year partnership

The event took place in the presence of the Chairman and Trustees of the Royal Air Force Museum and some of our Directors together with key partners, contributors and invited guests. We have been a partner in the Museum’s success for over forty years and the unveiling of the EAP is the start of a joint transformation of the Museum at both its Cosford and London sites, in advance of the Centenary of the Royal Air Force in 2018.

Alex Medhurst, RAF Museum Cosford General Manager said: “BAE Systems and its predecessor companies have played a key role in the success of the Royal Air Force and we are delighted that BAE Systems will champion our transformation as the Museum develops new exhibitions and activities to ensure that the Royal Air Force story endures and enriches future generations."

Chris Boardman, Managing Director of our Military Air & Information business said: “We are delighted to donate EAP to the RAF Museum and it is fitting that this remarkable aircraft should be at the centre of the Test Flight exhibition at RAF Cosford. We look forward to working in partnership with the RAF Museum and supporting them in conserving our aerospace heritage for future generations.”
