    Default My trip to RAF Davidstow

    Just got back from a short trip away. I had the chance to visit RAF Davidstow a now abandoned war time airfield.

    Right next to the airfield is the cornwall at war museum.

    Great photos, i didn't realise how big an aircraft the Gannet is until i saw one in the flesh!...
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    Very interesting, I think there is a problem with the Prinz Eugen Jacket : the insignia on the arm.

    What a great place !!

    I must visit there sometime!Thanks for the insight

    One thing that bugs me about these museums is when the female mannequins sport 1960's hair do's !

    Its the same in the control tower at the Yorkshire Air museum
