Midland Air Museum

Post by nuuumannn »

Hi Guys,

During 2018 I spent a long hot summer tripping around some of the UK's best aviation museums and I'm finally getting to go through and re-visit them. We start with the excellent, but crowded Midland Air Museum at Baginton, Coventry.

Upstairs in the main building are displays on Armstrong Whitworth, including this large model of an AW.681 heavy lifter, note the vectored thrust Medway engines.
