Fleet Air Arm Museum, Yeovilton

Over the holidays we visited the Fleet Air Arm Museum, Near Yeovilton BA22 8HW - UK

This collection of navel aircraft is housed in 4 interconnected halls with static aircraft displays from various eras. From the early days in WW1 to Falklands and later conflicts. There is also a multi media walk though of the Ark Royal Aircraft carrier and the UK prototype Concord.

Well worth a few hours visit to get up close and personal with this interesting brach of aeronautical engineering.

I find this places difficult and conflicting. Love the technology, hate the evidence that millions of $£ are spent for the sole purpose of killing other people.

Concord is easier to love, speed, hi-tech, innovation and the ground booming science of travelling too fast.
