East Midlands Aeropark

April 26th 2012
East Midlands Airport
On the way back to Lincolnshire after the base visit to Shawbury, I passed by East Midlands Airport and decided to pay a visit to the Aeropark which is on the race track side of the Airport. This was my first visit since they relocated to the new site,With the demise of Long Marston a lot of the exibits came here for some TLC.
