The RAF Museum-London is enlisting the public in choosing the exhibits that will be featured in the celebration of the centenary of the the First World War. The museum has set up a pinterest page entitled 100 First Air War Objects and are asking viewers to select their favorite five items for inclusion within the exhibition as well as setting up a survey for the public to indicate what types of displays they would most like to see.

The solicitation of public input is being performed in conjunction with the revamping of the displays and the submission of a bid for over a million dollars of funding from the British Heritage Lottery Fund. The WW1 exhibition will be centerpiece of the museum’s Grahame-White factory watch and hangar buildings which date back to 1917 and were painstakingly disassembled and reassembled brick by brick at their new location on the museum grounds a few years ago.
