    Photos inside hangars and museum are always tough conditions because the lighting typically sucks for photography and light either gets swallowed up in the vast spaces, or bounced all over display cases and other reflective surfaces. But you did a nice job in those conditions.

    With the weather, I did see a patch of blue sky in the Vulcan nose shot. ;)

    yeah sun got out a bit but they kept all the display's squashed together in the hanger rather than drag them outside !
    i wanted some shots of a full size replica of anto hackle's G-6 but it was in the darkest corner

    Very nice pictures, I couldnt stop noticing that theres an Argentinean IA 58 "Pucará" on that museum. It was a light ground attack plane, could reach around 600 km/h and it was heavily armed. Its a pitty it had to battle in the Falklands war against all odds of survivble, looks like it was captured on Falklands. It also looks rusty, the guys on the museum should clean it up, and fly it some day!, its a very nice plane. Great forum,cheers!
