We visited RAF Hendon this week and this is one of the aircraft we saw from ‘underneath’. It was a good experience and we saw many planes of all ages. The displays and write up were very interesting. The food was good too. We went by coach so it was a relaxing day for my husband too. RAF Hendon brings together planes long since gone and gives a comprehensive history of aviation.

I was aware for the first time just how the mothers and wives must have felt when their loved ones were away in the war and how much the airmen sacrificed for our freedom. I wondered how the airmen coped after the war with the dreadful things they had to take part in and what they endured. And indeed how our forces still give so much.
