IWM Duxford 2001    

On this page you can see photos of the trip that I made on saturday the 7th of april 2001 to the Imperial War Museum Duxford. This trip was organised by the Dutch MV-club Keep Them Rolling. On this special occasion it was possible to visit the famous B-17 bomber "Sally B". The museum consists of 5 hangars full of vintage airplanes. Besides that one can visit the American Air Museum, a collection of historic American combat aircraft. Duxford's fine collection of tanks, trucks and artillery is displayed in the Land Warfare Hall. Duxford is a living museum so it possible to see the historic planes flyor even make a flight in one of them.
