I’m not hugely interested in planes but Allan’s face lit up when I said we could go, so how could I let him down?!
And I’m glad I didn’t because it turned out to be really good!
I got my own personal guide in the form of Allan, who told me all about the planes and exhibitions. He’d helped out there as a boy and was really impressed with the improvements that have been made since his last visit.
What’s a museum without scary mannequins!
Unsurprisingly I loved all the vintage pieces everywhere! We even got to try them on (ignore my dodgy salute)!
It’s only £5 for adult entry usually (concessions available & free for children), but we arrived on a free entry day just before Christmas, where we only had to pay if we wanted a present from Santa! We decided to leave the gifts for the kids but we did pop in and wish him a merry Christmas!
There are plenty of interesting things to see for your money and the staff are really friendly and happy to chat or answer any questions, so if you find yourself in the area and fancy an education in aviation, head here!
