    What a shame that it's closing, it's a heck of a setup. Normandy Tank Museum A10 Airfield vehicles aircraft

    I read in the news that the recent union strikes pushed the gas prices up coupled with everyone keeping their head low in the wake of the recent terror attacks pretty much did them in.

    Yes, it really is a shame that any military or aviation museum has to close, especially one like this, situated where it is, and honouring the sacrifice of so many young men.
    It's a museum that has been on my 'bucket list' to visit at some point. Unless it's 'rescued', I guess I'll never get to see it.

    I have been to the museum twice. Such a shame.

    Normandy is truly one of my favorite places to visit.

    I hate to see this. Yes, hopefully someone or a group steps in to help out.

    That being said, $250,000 - $400,000 for a Sherman Tank!!!! Not running I'm sure!

    Would love to park an M3 Stuart at my yard to keep my neighbor's pesky dog off my lawn.

    Unfortunately, 80.000 euros translate to 1,1 billion in my local currency.
