Soon on our screens, the Tuskegee Airmen story by Gearges "Star War" Lucas

yduwelz has shared a video with you on YouTube:
First Public Promotional Trailer for the feature film RED TAILS.

1944. World War II rages and the fate of the free world hangs in the balance. Meanwhile the black pilots of the experimental Tuskegee training program are courageously waging two wars at once -- one against enemies overseas, and the other against discrimination within the military and back home. Racial prejudices have long held ace airman Martin "Easy" Julian (Nate Parker) and his black pilots back at base -- leaving them with little to do but further hone their flying skills -- while their white counterparts are shipped out to combat after a mere three months of training. Mistakenly deemed inferior and assigned only second-rate planes and missions, the pilots of Tuskegee have mastered the skies with ease but have not been granted the opportunity to truly spread their wings. Until now.
As the war in Europe continues to take its dire toll on Allied forces, Pentagon brass has no recourse but to rec... more

As Recommended By....
July has provided the Museum with a plethora of online recommendations from the public.

Currently we are a top 20 London tourist attraction on, as recommended by visitors of this forum; we have been awarded a 'Netmums Favourite 2011' award for attractions in North London as voted for by members of the Netmums network who have visited us during the last 12 months; and we have been recommended by TimeOut London as one of the 101 things that people should do in London this summer as voted for by bloggers to the magazine.

Should you visit us during the next 12 months we would welcome you posting your review of the Museum on any of the above forums – particularly, as it would be great if we could become a recommended Top 10 London Attraction – or if you prefer in the Museum's own online Visitor's Book, which can be accessed through the link below.

1/48 diecast model 
Online Shop News
We hate using the word 'Christmas' in August, but it happens upon us quicker than we anticipate every year.

So with the Festive Season in mind, particularly for our overseas e-news subscribers, we thought that now would be an opportune time to flag up a range of new products that we're confident will prove to be a hit with RAF aficionados worldwide – the RAF's first ever officially licensed range of die-cast model aircraft, the quality and detail of which are "second to none". 
At this moment in time the range consists of 3 models: a Hawk T.1A limited edition as flown by pilots of 208 Squadron at RAF Valley; a Hawk T.1A limited edition as flown by pilots of 151 Squadron; and a Hawk T.1A as flown by the Red Arrows.
Each of these 1/48 die-cast collectors models can be displayed with the canopy open or shut, wheel up or down and comes complete with a display stand and model crew member – all for a very reasonable £69.99. As with all products sold through the Museum shops, profits from their sale goes back to the maintenance of the Royal Air Force Museum's collections.
Further details about these models can be found on our online shop or in our new  Summer Catalogue, released today, which is available on request by following the link below.

Falconry Fortnight 
School's Out For Summer
In last month's newsletter, we touched upon the family events that will be taking place at the Museum this August. Full details about these events can be accessed by going through to the 'August Activities' page on our website.

But to quickly recap, August kicks off with a week of fantastical tales about flying and flight, specially devised for children 3 to 9 (1st to 7th); before we have a fortnight of thrice daily wild bird displays as part of Falconry Fortnight (8th to 21st); after which we close the month with a week of quiz trails & puzzles that celebrate 'Women of the Air Force' (22nd to 28th).

Our 'Fantasy Flight' and' Falconry Fortnight' sessions will run daily at 11.30am, 1.30pm and 3.30pm – whilst our 'Women of the Air Force Week' Trail will be available, free of charge, at the Museum's Main Entrance.

All trails successfully completed will be entered into a daily Prize Draw to win £25.00 worth of goodies from the Museum shop…better yet participation in our each of our 'August Activities' is free of charge to all.
Battle of Britain Weekend 
Battle of Britain Weekend & Beyond, Part 1
If you are planning on visiting us during September, the Museum has two events taking place which might be of interest.
The first is the Museum's Battle of Britain Weekend, which will be taking place on 10th & 11th of September.
At this annual pageant commemorating Veterans of the Battle of Britain the Museum will explain the importance of this aerial campaign  to our visitors through a series of living tableaux, tours, and concerts that will be free for members of the public to attend.
In addition to the above activities the Museum will also be hosting a Spitfire flypast, courtesy of the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight on the Sunday, subject to weather conditions (timing still to be confirmed) and will be opening up our 1940 Home Front Room  to offer members of the public the opportunity to experience a Blitz safety practice – with an ARP man so strict that any disobedience will be met with immediate punishment!
Members of the public will also have the opportunity to make and paint their own 1:72 model Spitfire, courtesy of Airfix, and to enjoy showing the1969 classic 'Battle of Britain' on the big screen in the Museum's Lecture Theatre.

Brothers in Arms 
Battle of Britain Weekend & Beyond, Part 2
The second September event which may be of interest is the opening of a new temporary exhibition 'Brothers in Arms: Poles and Czecholosovaks in the Battle of Britain & Beyond' on 16th in the Museum's newly refurbished Temporary Exhibition Gallery.
This area can be found to the left-hand side of the top of our Conference Reception stairs, directly opposite the entrance of the Museum's newly  re-furbished Art Gallery.
In this multimedia exhibition, curated in association with the Polish Institute of National Remembrance,  the Museum will explore through drawings, archive film footage and sculpture the bravery of men such as Czech fighter pilot Josef Frantisek and the men of 303 Squadron; and the fate of those Polish & Czechoslovakian RAF pilots who returned back to their homelands after World War 2 only to be deemed criminals and outcasts by Communist regimes desperate to 'clip the wings' of any 'dangerous elements' who could become powerful totems around which potential resistance could form.
Linked to this temporary exhibition, the museum has also created an
online exhibition and podcast about Poles in the Battle of Britain where the friends and family of Polish, Czech and Slovak veterans are welcome to post their stories to be read by our online audience. To access this exhibition please click on the link below.
