Fleet Air Arm Museum

I spent two days last week with some friends from my camera club visiting two air museums. These next shots are from our visit to Yeovilton .

This is one of the very best aircraft museums I have visited. The layout gives plenty of space to each exhibit with good explanations of the aircraft’s part in the story of military aviation at sea. The Carrier Experience is very well done, so much so it had me looking both ways when I crossed the active runway to make sure it was clear.
