Yorkshire Air Museum, Elvington

I hadn’t been for a while.  It’s like walking around my bedroom in 1970 with all my Airfix models but they are real 1 to 1 scale. I was born in 1956 so WW2 was still in many people’s thoughts.  Because my dad had fought in that war I was intrigued by all those WW2 planes and probably right up to the moon landings aircraft were a huge part of my boyhood.  What’s missing here of course is the Russian, Japanese and U.S. WW2 planes, they were ace.  Maybe a model of Concorde was the last thing I was interested in before guitars came my way!.
