Dan-Air Comet G-APYD and British Airways Trident G-AWZM hidden away in a very cramped storage hangar of the Science Museum at Wroughton. Both aircraft were complete and in excellent condition. This Comet was first delivered in May 1960 (to Olympic as SX-DAL) and withdrawn from use by Dan-Air on 23 Oct 1979. A week later, on 1 Nov 1979, it was flown from London-Gatwick to Wroughton on delivery to the museum.

Ex KLM Connie, beautifully preserved at the Wroughton Science Museum facility. Delivered to KLM in 1947, as PH-TET "Tilburg", later PH-LDT, and withdrawn from use Sep 1960. It was converted to freighter in 1962, then briefly carried TI-1045P in 1964 before becoming N7777G that same year. As such it saw service with many operators until impounded at Dublin in 1974, where it would remain for many years. Sold to Aces High in 1982 and registered as G-CONI, but reg never applied. The Science Museum acquired the aircraft and transported it from Dublin to Wroughton in July 1983. Restoration completed in Sep 1984 in TWA colours, even though it never flew for TWA.

A very early DC-3, when photographed it was one of the oldest still in existence. Originally delivered to United Air Lines, way back in 1936, as NC16071. As of 1949 the Class Letter system was abandoned and it became simply N16071, then N333H, N8695E, N255JB and N65556, with various operators. In 1969 it was acquired by Skyways Inc. as N655GP, and as such it made its way to Europe in the early 1970s. It was mostly based in Ireland and was operated by several companies. In March 1976 it was registered as EI-AYO, and then sold to the Science Museum in late 1978.

On display in its original Highland Airways colours. It was delivered to that airline in 1933, and used for the inauguration of their Aberdeen-Orkney service in July 1934 (hence the aircraft's name). After that it saw service with several operators, but always kept the same registration. In Sep 1971 it became part of the Historic Aircraft Museum at Southend. This museum closed and saw its aircraft auctioned off in May 1983, which is where the Science Museum acquired it. In 1993 it was fully refurbished and painted in the historic Highland colours you see here.

Delivered to United Air Lines (via National Air Transport) in 1933 as NC13340, first as a Boeing 247, converted to 247D in July 1935. To the CAA (predecessor of the FAA) in 1942 as NC18. Sold in 1947, to N18 in 1949, and served with various companies. Reregistered as N18E in 1953. Acquired by the Wings and Wheels Museum at Orlando, FL in 1977. The museum closed in Dec 1981, and acquired by the Science Museum in a Christie's auction. An epic delivery flight then took this rare Boeing 247 through Reykjavik, Dublin and Cardiff on 29/30 Jul 1982. The final leg to Wroughton was flown on 3 Aug 1982.

A Mignet "Flying Flea" hiding under the belly of a DC-3. This little aircraft was first registered in April 1936 and withdrawn from use three years later. Many years later the interesting and unusual biplane was acquired by the Science Museum and displayed at their rarely-opened Wroughton facility. In 2011 it was transferred to the "M" Shed Museum in Bristol.
