MOSI – Manchester 2010 visit

October 21st 2010

On a visit to family in Manchester,I took the opportunity to take the Tram to visit the aircraft section of MOSI,Lancashire being the home of Avro. at Chadderton English Electric,BAC & BAE at Preston,H.S at Woodford . You would think a large aviation museum would exist in the North West.
The Museum’s aircraft collection is housed in an ex indoor market.At the time of my visit ex Avro engineers were busy producing a replica Avro type F which was the first enclosed cabin monoplane built. One of my pictures of the Avro type F was published in Flypast late last year.
I have posted a pictorial log of my visit,If you are in Manchester this is a must to visit.
