Norfolk & Suffolk Aviation Museum – Flixton 7th August 2013.

Norfolk & Suffolk Aviation Museum visit  – August 7th 2013
For a long time I have wanted to revisit the Norfolk & Suffolk Aviation Museum at Flixton in Suffolk so I checked the weather and sorted out the camera bag, I got away from home about 10-30am and had a quick look at the BBMF and  ASP ramp at Coningsby, I set off and arrived at Flixton around 13-10pm and had a good couple of hours looking round at this privately owned  Museum with plenty of unique aircraft and Autogyro’s. I had not visited for about 10 years so a lot had changed, Several new display Hangers and a lot more exhibits since my last visit.I have posted a log and pictures of what I viewed on the day.

A great Museum with a very diverse collection , I would hope that there is something of interest for everyone that visits the Norfolk & Suffolk Aviation Museum.  As with most Air Museums space undercover is at a premium so exhibits are very close together , It makes taking pictures a challenge. The Cafe and shop were well stocked and the staff were very helpful. A long way from Coningsby but well worth the visit.
