Took a trip to Newark Air Museum ,the first time in about 20 years and really enjoyed it lots of exhibits and displays ,a nice cafe and a book and model shop as well . Here are just a small selection of photographs I took during our visit.The Museum was formally R.A.F Winthorpe and has a memorial to  Bomber Command .The Memorial is topped by a Prop hub from a Short Stirling that crashed nearby and has 9 trees dedicated to each crew member all of whom perished in the crash ,other trees are dedicated to Squadrons,personnel and aircraft types that served at or near the airfield.
