Apologies to those tuning in expecting to see photographs of the lush, green isle of Corfu. Due to technical difficulties these will now be shown at a later date ( the only one I can get my hands on is the one above! ). Instead for your perusal we have photographs of jets and jeeps taken this afternoon at the NorthEast Aircraft Museum.
Up until 1984 Sunderland had an airport which was closed to make way for the Nissan car plant. Now there is a museum just next to the car plant which is run entirely by volunteers and on donations.
Although it's only a few miles from where we live neither Hub or myself had been there before. As we got off the bus the heavens opened and we got drenched which wasn't really a good start but the sun did come out and by the time we were on our way home it was quite hot and sunny.
Milo got to go in few cockpits and although wary at first once he got in we couldn't get him out!
The Flying Flea
Remote controlled tanks - definately big boys toys
There were quite a few people dressed up in 1940's soldier outfits, which I wish I'd taken more pictures of.
I liked this one
Milo liked this one
I've got a bit of a soft spot for jeeps and I think we all had a good time
I've also had an idea for a swap so tune in soon for the next instalment !!
