Duxford Air Museum

Today Steve took us to Duxford Air Museum, part of the Imperial War Museum.

There's not much more to say, except that we walked through Concorde 002, and saw a Comet 4, Catelina Flyingboats, English Electric Lightning, a Sabre, BAR TSR-2 bomber, a Trident 2, a Vulcan bomber, a Shackelton, Spitfires, Mustangs, Hurricanes, Lancasters, Vampires, a Victor, Gloucestor Meteors, ME109, V1, Harrier, Tiger Moths, Bristol Bombers, an Argentine Pucara captured in the Faulklands, flying fortresses, Fairy Swordfish, U2, A4, Phantoms, F111, and one of the two B52s on display outside the US. The other is in Darwin, and I've seen that too. There were a LOT of other planes whose names escape me at the moment. We also wandered through the exhibit of WW1 and WW2 army equipment. Aaron was disappointed when I told him Customs in Sydney would confiscate the 105mm Howitzer.
