Fleet Air Arm Heritage

The development of Britain’s great naval aviation heritage is one of the most remarkable stories of the past hundred years.

It is a story of epic achievement, heroic and daring actions and world leading technological advancement that radically shaped history.
Funded by public donations, Navy Wings brings the excitement and discovery of this story to life by restoring, maintaining and flying a collection of historic aircraft, which display to over three million people annually at air shows and events up and down the country.

Swordfish W5856

W5856 is the oldest surviving airworthy Fairey Swordfish in the world.

The 'Stringbag' was widely considered to be obsolete at the start of the Second World War but performed with distinction throughout. The type is famous for the daring raid on Taranto, the pursuit of the Bismarck, attacking the German fleet in the Channel Dash and its pivotal roll in the Battle of the Atlantic.
