    Dumfries Aviation Museum

    I had a look around Dumfries and Galloway Aviation Museum last week,This place is like the tardis ,it looks small but is crammed with allsorts ,aircraft, engines,ordnance,restoration shed,static displays,etc etc i only had a couple of hours to rush round,but its definately worth visiting if you get the chance,You can even get to sit in the cockpits of some of the aircraft on display,
    Link to the museum here..http://www.dumfriesaviationmuseum.com/

    when i was there i found out the new landlords had raised the site rent from 700 pa to 5000 pa,which will make it hard for this museum to continue


    also went to The Devils Porridge Exhibition near Gretna.......very dissapointing ,i wouldnt go again.

    Ooppps, As for the Grand Slam i have never seen one in the flesh before so had no idea they were that big, what was the overall weight of the bomb, and i assume that this would be the only bomb loaded on the bomber. Not much room for anything else.?
