Duxford IWM part 3

 Part three of our visit was to the small airborne museum, as a ex Aussie Para it is always of interest! 

Most interesting were the maps of the diorama from the dday landing zones.

A number of photos will join my para equipment articles also

 IWM Duxford

In the UK for a short holiday and the wife and we visited a bucket list destination for both of us,  Duxford IWM for the day. 

A fabulous museum that any aircraft nut should visit. We also paid an extra £10 each for the Lancaster experience and lecture which was a highlight for both of us as the Lancaster is my wife’s favorite aircraft of ww2. 

 The second highlight was the watch the flight of the twin seater spitfire experience 45 min ride around Cambridgeshire. 

A great collection of ww1, mid war, ww2 and modern aircraft were on display but split over several hangers and not in any particular order, we also visited the ops room, the American air museum plus we visited the small airborne museum also, but failed to make the East Anglian regiment museum and the land component museum. 

First up some ww2 aircraft photos, then next post modern
