Catch Cold War events

The National Museum of Flight is to hold a Cold War event.

The museum, at East Fortune in East Lothian, will demonstrate to visitors what life was like in the middle of the conflict.

Hangars on the museum’s airfield were used as storage for military supplies, and its runways were extended with the intention of turning it into a US military base.
