What is Navy Wings?


Navy Wings keeps heritage Naval aircraft in the skies, telling the exciting story of the early pioneers of Naval flying to HMS Queen Elizabeth and her F35 jets. Funded entirely by public donations the charity restores, maintains and flies a collection of rare and historically significant naval aircraft which display and inspire millions of people each year at air shows around the country.

Based at RNAS Yeovilton the collection includes the only two airworthy Swordfish in the world, two Sea Furies, a Sea Hawk and Sea Vixen. Together with our associate collection, Navy Wings tells the nationally important story of flying from ships at sea from the First World War to the Fleet Air Arm of today.


Our flying aircraft link the Royal Naval Air Service of World War I, through to the Fleet Air Arm of today. Including both piston and jet powered aircraft, seaplanes and helicopters, they are a national asset of incomparable value.


Navy Wings is unique in creating a collective of flying vintage aircraft to bring the story of naval aviation to life. Our historic aircraft provide a tribute of remembrance to the fortitude and sacrifice of all who served in the Royal Naval Air Service and Fleet Air Arm.
