PICTURES & VIDEO: How the RAF Museum moved with the times

The Royal Air Force Museum in Hendon, London has gone all web 2.0 with a new look website, graphics, easier navigation, RSS feeds and more interactivity.

Events will soon be live streamed and a blog is also about to be launched along with a mobile version of the site. 

From Monday 15th the Museum will present the first in a series of ‘celebrity podcasts’ available on iTunes. Operation Chastise, popularly known as The Dambusters Raid, is narrated by the actor Richard Todd, who played Wing Commander Guy Gibson in the classic film The Dambusters (1955).

He tells the story of the design of the ‘bouncing bomb’ and the raid itself.

The Museum launches a YouTube Channel and the first short film shows how the aircraft in the Milestones of Flight hangar are suspended.
