I had a spare day from work so i decided to visit AeroVenture at Doncaster, It has been a far few years since my last visit to Doncaster and there has been a lot of buildings put up around the Museum, I arrived at the race course only to find it a little hard to find.
The staff at the Museum were helpful and friendly and on asking let me over the ropes to get better positions to take my pictures.I also had the tour of the stored airframes and nothing was any trouble for any of the staff.
I have posted a pictorial log of what i viewed on my day at the Museum.
