Steel work on a home for 13 Cold War bombers was nearing completion this week. The building is part of the world's first Cold War Aviation Museum and is being built by contractor Galliford Try at the RAF Museum Cosford in Shropshire. Numerous other aircraft from the nuclear arms race era will also be housed in the steel framed hangar, which has a roof made of Kalzip standing seam cladding, constructed on structural steel, three-chord trusses. The £8.9M building, part funded by the Lottery and Ministry of Defence, is due to be completed by autumn 2006.
