THE DeVilbiss Company Ltd, of Bournemouth, have installed a purpose‐built paint shop at the RAF Museum Restoration and Storage Centre in RAF Cardington, Bedfordshire. The RAF Museum in Hendon has one of the largest collections of historic aircraft in the world and started from a private collection in 1962. Originally called the Historic Aircraft Flight, its aircraft were kept at RAF Henlow. However, many of these aircraft are the sole remaining examples in the world and are far too precious to risk in flight and are now permanently exhibited at the Museum in Hendon.
