When it comes to planes, my cousin, Henry, is the family’s go-to person. He got it from his dad and his dad can probably pronounce the models better but who can resist a three-year-old giving you plane trivia non-stop?
The Royal Air Force is United Kingdom’s aerial warfare force. Both Prince William and Prince Harry attended Defence Helicopter Flying School at RAF Shawbury. Prince William used to serve the RAF as a pilot for search and rescue missions.
We spent around half an hour outside of the Royal Air Force Museum. Vintage planes and fighter jets will greet you once you get inside the area, with people doing maintenance on some. We didn’t get to see the inside of the museum, unfortunately, because we were so keen on seeing the planes that were on the runway to fly. But alas, they didn’t. Henry and I did a lot of running though, as it was a nice day out. The parking area has grassy hills where people lie down to observe the planes. Some were even lying down just to sunbathe! If you are interested in history and planes, this is definitely a place you’d want to visit.
I’ll have to return next time and see what they have on the inside. Apparently, they have exhibits on planes and cars that were used during World War II. Learn more about them here.
Without further ado, here are some of the photos taken at the RAF Museum in Cosford, West Midlands!
