Great collection highlighted by the Lancaster which is prominently displayed. Great to see lots of restoration going on. Had a great guide show us around the planes that are outside. If you are interested in aviation you need to visit this museum.

The Museum houses around a great number of World war 2 aircrafts many of which still fly. They also have restorations of these aircrafts going on side by side. It's worth a visit and be able to see many of those great aircrafts of yesteryear
