My first time at Duxford...an amazing place and with the temperature at 36 degrees at midday, a?n even better experience.

Was lucky enough to meet a gentleman who suggested I wait for a while for “something special”...turned out to be the first roll out of the Lysander!!

Took 800 plus photos! Some of my favorites

Not Duxford - was down at Eastbourne on the south coast (near Brighton) looking at this

When the unmistakable sound of this flew over

Without a doubt! Fantastic experience...the staff in the restoration hangars were brilliant. One guy took me behind the scenes to a Pucara captured during the Falklands War...it is awaiting restoration...has to wait as they are restoring an HP Victor B(K)1A

Hi Vlamgat

Thanks for the photo's. All the aircraft look beyond pristine.

Do you have any tips when visiting the Museum?
