Wellesbourne Wartime Museum

Visit took place on
While on a cross country from Coningsby to Bristol I took the opportunity to call at the old Wellesbourne Mountford Aerodrome,  It’s been a good few years since my last visit so I was glad to see the Vulcan B2 still looking good. A visit to the tower and permission granted for a good look round the Aerodrome it was time to  check out the small Aircraft Museum run by the local Wellesboune Aviation Group.
This is a pictorial record of the aircraft I saw on the day.
