First, we went to the visitor center, where I fell in love with a flying helmet, thich sheepsking, with ears well covered, and that's going to be my biking helmet in winter! And a pair of flying goggles, for when it rains. We also bought a few books. Then on to the museum.
There's 11 buildings, and we went into them one at a time,. The place is huge, we walked seven kilometers by the time we got back to the car.
First, two spitfires.
And a Hurricane.
Then outside, the Memphis Belle ...
And a BUFF ...
In a hangar, a V1
And outside, a V1 on a ramp, ready for firing.
And a Concorde.
And finally, two views of a Lancaster.
It was a really good day out, and I'd recommend it to everyone.
I thought that the science and history section, which was upstairs in the main hanger was good too.ReplyDelete
Duxford is great, isn't it?ReplyDelete
In case you're interested, the B-17 you pictured is "Sally B", she wears the Memphis Belle markings on one side as she was the "star" of the 1989 remake of the film.
Yes, I knew about the B17. But for me, the highlight of the exhibition was the Lancaster!ReplyDelete
