Just a thought - might it be worth the Mods amending the thread subject to perhaps say "UK Air Museums Re-Opening" ?

Just announced on BBC Breakfast weather, live from hangar 4 Duxford, the museum is opening on the 1st August.

Edit - From IWM Web Site.
Reopening this August
IWM Duxford will reopen from Saturday 1 August. Member booking now open. General public booking from Wednesday 15 July.
Looks as though as a Member, you have to book a ticket to get in. No turning up on the day.

Duxford on the 1st of August.

A number of volunteers will be getting the dusters out over the next few weeks to make everything is spick and span!
