I visited on a bitterly cold day for some research. Once finished I looked around the rest of the exhibits. What never ceases to amaze me are the conditions that the crews went to war in between 1939 and 1945. They were in confined spaces, often alone and without all the communications and navigational equipment we take for granted. Some of the aircraft, particularly the multi engined ones were not fast or manoeuvrable compared with the fighter opposition. So to see them, and inside them is powerful. The modern aircraft represent a very varied and interesting selection of Cold War warriors, well worth a look. The converted buildings house a variety of related exhibits giving an inside into a past still within living memory as well as a restaurant which served a very warm and tasty shepherds pie on a cold day. Well with a visit.
