    Looks a great place to visit. It is easy to forget the age of some of these jets now.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Hmmm at first i was thinking aircraft engine because it's displayed in an aviation museum, could very well be a marine motor!...

    thanks for stopping by to have a look ade ,nick,terry and harry and many thanks for your thoughts on the crankshaft paul ,if the curators arent sure then your idea could be a valid one ,the lack of remaining parts and heavy corrosion would make positively indentifying it a lot harder ,who knows what they have dragged up from the irish sea , i agree ade it is easy to forget how old they are ,to think how quickly the technology moved on post ww2 ,these aircraft truly are pleasing to the eye ,and cheers terry ,yes my daughter ,a lot more enthusiastic to posing with the displays ,and yes that old bugger is me ,at 6ft 5 i managed to shoehorn myself in ,getting out wasnt so easy but did contemplate this function ,thanks jamesClick image for larger version.

    Neat museum !

    I, too like the Vampire as well. It's one of the few postwar jets that I like.

    Great photos, thank you for sharing!

    whoops ,just noticed my typo ,my bad jerry ,have ammended it now ,perhaps i had one to many sherberts ,allthough im proud to be welsh im not a staunch nationalist ,my only excuse is the german bomber was on its way to birmingham via wales ,also i realise this forum has members based from all over the globe and just wanted to point them in the right direction am i forgiven ,my wife will kill me for this but i feel it sums up her interest in the placeClick image for larger version.
