Museum: Imperial War Museum Duxford

Probably the UK’s centre for historic aviation and is the UK’s largest aviation musuem.  Duxford is a former RAF (& USAAF) WW1 and WW2 airfield, which became home to the Imperial War Museum in the 1970’s.  Many of the original structures remain and now house the museum’s collection but the airfield is also home to a number of warbird restorers and operators including the Fighter Collection (TFC), the Aircraft Restoration Company and the Old Flying Machine Company (OFMC).

Usually I visit the museum when attending the many airshows held here, however, I have made visits when simply in the area to browse the collection when it is much quieter than a show day.
