This section highlights a small sample of the various Air Museums we have at our disposal in the U.K. The details of some of those I've visited are below, click on the images below to go to the associated museum website:
Davidstow Moor Museums: 2010
Davidstow Moor is in Cornwall and in 1942 the airfield was created for use by Coastal Command. It was an RAF base where 206 Squadron were based in March and April 1944.
The airfield is still there along with 2 museums that are situated next to each other.
Davidstow Moor Control Tower and Airfield
Davidstow Moor RAF Memorial Museum
Cornwall At War Museum
Royal Air Force Museum London: 2008
This museum is based down in Hendon, London off Junction 1 of the M1. It has a huge selection of World War II aircraft, especially of interest to anyone with links to Coastal Command. The highlights for me are pictured below as they have links to Ken's aircraft from WWII. The main 4 are there: Anson, Hudson, Liberator and Flying Fortress (albeit an American one opposed to RAF), there is also a Sunderland (you can go inside) Wellington, Mitchell, Oxford and many more. They also have interactive screens that you can read up on additional information about the aircraft and squadrons, to my surprise the 206 Squadron section had a photograph of Ken's Fortress FA702 'P'.
