Duxford Air Museum Photos

In early June Alan Johnson and I went to the huge air museum at Duxford, not far from Cambridge. It reminds me very much of the National Air and Space Museum in Washington. Not only does it have a great collection of aircraft, but it also has many other war exhibits relating to Great Britain. Here are some photos from that visit.The first Concorde, test model.
Concorde Interior.

Alan in front of display honoring English servicemen in the Malaya Campaign. He fought there in the early fifties.
This B-17 was used in 'The Memphis Belle' movie.
It still has one side decorated to that effect.
Lancaster--the greatest British bomber.
Mosquito--the greatest recon aircraft of the war.

Another Messerschmitt
V-1 Rocket and Launch Pad.
B-24 Liberator---Lovely plane.
Rommel's staff car.
Montgomery's mobile field office.

That first Messerschmit is really a late model Spitfire.

That Concorde is not the first, but it is infact the third.
