After a day of technical presentations and networking our host arranged dinner here. Out tables beneath the classic Lancaster was excellent and entertaining with help from The Candy Girls. Some many interesting aircraft and to get so close too. I highly recommend a visit.

I love World War 2 and I love aeroplanes. The museum has a fantastic portion of the Battle of Britain. This is one of the best museums that I have ever been to. I will be going back to the museum in the near future.
