We took advantage of having a car at our disposal this weekend. Tony was very keen to visit the Jet Age Museum at the former Staverton Airfield
The Vulcan nose and the navigators position
The Meteor and below Meteor trainer
Frank Whittle the inventor of the jet engine
We saw these exquisite tapestries on display in Gloucester Museum. Each one has a notice explaining what happened to the RAF Station. Most of the wartime airfieds have simply returned to agricultaural use
My favourite bit was this wall outlining Women in the Air
If you are an enthusiast then you could spend a couple of hours here. It does have extermely enthusiastic volunteers that like to engage you in conversation! It does have cafe and most gents were tucking into bacon butties.
