For this week’s theme, I’m returning to Scotland’s National Museum of Flight. It is home to a wonderful collection of aircraft, both military and civilian. The star attraction of the museum is undoubtably Concorde G-BOAA, but there’s plenty of other aircraft to see and enjoy too, and we certainly didn’t get around all four hangars plus all of the outside exhibits in a single day.
Not all the attractions are in the hangars. Between Hanger 4 (home of Concorde) and Hangar 3 (home of aircraft awaiting restoration) sits a BAC1-11. This example first flew in 1968, and served British Airways until its retirement in 1993. You can go onboard and see both the well-preserved seating and the cockpit.
If you’re reading this in the RSS feed, my original blog post also includes a Google map showing where this photo was taken. Unfortunately I haven’t managed to get the map to appear yet in the RSS feed, so for now you’ll have to click through to my blog if you want to see the map. Sorry.
