well mate i spent a good hour in there, when you first go in the the place you can go round and have a look at all the planes/helecopters hen you can go on a tour of the carrier and i got to say the tour was amasing bigtime, yes mate you can go in to the concorde and will say its massive inside, you can accually see the engine on the back of it, really good, if you like planes and helecopters thats the place to goo. have got a few more pictures here if u want to see them??

Duxford is excellent mate, they have various shows on as well through the summer. There was no show on when we went but a chap took a mustang up and thrashed it good and proper.

Did Sunderland airshow last weekend, absolutely brilliant, £5 to park the car all day, free shuttle bus to and fro and the airshow was free :Hit:

fireblade I took your advice about going to the fleet air arm museum and we had a great time there Concorde was huge. We stayed in a hotel near by. Have you been to the haynes car museum just up the road from there that was really good as well.

I can definately recommend Duxford. Its a bit pricy to get in but effectivily you get two museams in one as there is a large US hanger as well which has SR-71 and B52 amongst others.

Yes mate I walked the length of the plane. The cockpit was a little small in my opinion going of the size of the plane. That made up aircraft carrier was good, Did you watch that film clip of that plane rolling of the ship?. A brilliant day out mate we spent about 5 hours there
