National Museum of Scotland 2016

The museum reopened in July after a major refurbishment. Part of that involved the Science and Technology Galleries, with balconies on three floors overlooking a central space, now occupied by historic aircraft from the Museum of Flight's collection at East Fortune. From the highest [and oldest] are Pilcher's Hawk [1897]; Slingsby T-12 Gull glider [G-ALPA, 1939-40]; De Havilland Tiger Moth G-AEOL [1930s], originally RAF N9510 until it became a civil aircraft in 1955; Beagle Auster A.61 Terrier [G-ARSL, 1960s]; and a Piper PA-38 Tomahawk [G-BGXB, 1979].
