    ok here is some pics from the RAF museum in Hendon, there are a lot of great exhibits there but i think some of the displays are presented in badly lit hall's that made taking pictures very difficult for me so i have had to junk a lot of pictures i took !

    Hendon is the only museum I've ever been to where you need a f*cking torch to see the exhibits. Get thee to RAF Cosford!

    Great stuff Karl. Got to agree about the lighting - somewhere, I've got some 35 mm transparencies, taken in the mid 1980s, when the layout and lighting was great. No flash needed, hand held, and the exhibits at more 'camera friendly' angles. I hope they improve this situation when the 'new' museum goes ahead.

    One of the best museums I have ever been to. Right up their with the National Air and Space Museum in Washington.

    I posted up some pretty nice pics as well in a thread I did when I went to London the last time back in October 10. Most of my pics turned out pretty good and very light (except those in the bomber hall because I had the settings wrong on my camera).

    Love the history behind the Australian Hudson Bomber. Shooting down a Japanese Sally Bomber sounds very interesting. I wonder if a Bomber shooting down another Bomber happened all that much, or was it fairly common occurance to do during the war?
