London visit -- Day 4

The final day was spent wandering around the RAF museum in Colindale, North London. It was just a short walk from the Tube and despite yesterday's snow, the trains seemed to be more or less running OK.

The museum is huge, with masses of planes of all eras from the beginning of flight to the present day. To take photographs inside, you had to pay about 6 quid for a permit, so I didn't bother. I preferred to just look at the exhibits and read the informative panels explaining the history of each plane. I liked the way they included the personal history of the machine in the exhibition as well as the overall history of the type of plane.
