    Well, I managed to do both in England! I feel like these two amazing museums need their own thread instead of getting lost in my picture thread...

    Duxford was first up, Hendon was later on...without further to do

    Very nice B-17. Went to Hendon in '77 with a rinky-dink point and shoot film camera. Did not work out.

    The American building is both impressive and a photographer's nightmare - the whole end wall is glass, so looking that way creates extreme glare, but looking from that end things tend to go into the shadows...

    But all the same, it is a fantastic building containing a great collection - I don't think there are many places outside the US where you can see a B-17, B-24, and B-29 together, never mind a U2 and SR-71 alongside a F-111, F-4, and A-10... 8)
