    Was bored last week so decided on a whim to go and visit the Fleet Air Arm museum. Very interesting place which joins onto the airfield, but due to horrible weather there wasn't much going on. Thought I'd share some photos, was still trying out my new camera phone so not all the pictures worked. Anyway, here's some of the better ones

    Martlet was under restoration, hence the photo is taken through glass

    Thanks for sharing your pictures NC that last shot is really well composed.
    The work and research that has gone into the Corsair is amazing it must be the most completly original WW2 aircraft in exsistance taking off the layers of paint to get back to the 1940's coat was certainly a labour of love.

    Good shots! I will add this to the Museums list...

    Where is the museum located?

    You should put some captions on the Photo's though, not all of the visitors can tell an Avenger from an Albacore.... :D
