RAF Museum Hendon


With Coningsby being slow at the moment I decided on a visit to the RAF Museum, It’s about ten years since my last visit with a lot of changes in that time.The milestone of flight was the first to be visited.
The museum staff were very helpful when asked they were happy escorting me over to places closed to get a better angle for my pictures.I have posted a log and pictures of my vist, It took me most of the day to go round the museum and I have left some for my next visit.
