IWM – Duxford 28th Jan 2013

Visit 28th Jan 2013.

Well my first outing of the year, The snow has cleared away and the temperature  has risen above freezing. I am going to see a good friend of mine in Hospital in Cambridge later in the afternoon so I have added a trip to  the Imperial War Museum at Duxford on the way.
Duxford is top of my Museum visit list as the aircraft from the IWM at South Lambeth are being stored at Duxford while the London site is being refurbished. I have added the usual list of what was seen on the day and I will add pictures when I have time to post.
