The Royal Air Force Museum, Hendon, UK has unveiled plans to construct an UK£ 80 million (€ 93.5 million) tower in honour of the RAF pilots who fought in the Battle of Britain.
The 116 m-high Battle of Britain Beacon, which will house an exhibition on the World War II air conflict, will mark the 70th anniversary of the battle fought over the skies of Britain from July to October 1940.
The steel and glass tower will feature a high-speed lift.
The project is set to be funded privately and the museum is currently consulting on its plans.
