The Aeroconservancy is a collection of original artifacts from the aircraft and air services which flew during the First World War.     


This site was first launched in 1998 as "The Gosse Collection" and renamed "The Aeroconservancy" a few years later.  At the end of 2018, the site was completely redesigned and updated. 


In order to afford new acquistions, artifacts are occassionally deaccessioned or, in other words, sold.  The last time this happened was in 2010 when about half the collection was sold.
