Royal Duxford

As a part of the boys ongoing fascination with war planes and tanks etc we spent a really lovely day at   Royal Duxford in Cambridgeshire.  Set in an old WW1/II airfield it houses hundreds of aircraft, tanks, military vehicles and boats.  And as they had an air show on the weekend after we visited we were also lucky enough to see the old planes flying and doing tricks in the air, it was fantastic - even for me and I'm not into war planes lol.  Anyway at a cost of £17 per adult and children under 16 going free it was a cheap day too and I would highly recommend it.  There is lots of walking between all the hangers and the two younger ones found it a bit hard going so we sat on some picnic benches towards the end and let the older two finish the hangers by themselves but everyone loved it and we plan to return one day soon inshaAllah [God willing].

And as usual, here are some photos...

As salaam alaikum,

I've never seen anything like that. Your boys must have been thrilled.

Wa alaikum assalaam, they loved it and spent the whole day running from one exhibit to the next saying 'wow mum, look at this' lol. Definitely have to go again inshaAllah. xXx
