East Midlands Aero park

As part of my Birthday treats ,I was taken to the Aero park museum near Donnington Park .A really interesting place run by very helpful and pleasant volunteer staff with a nice collection of post war Air Craft some of which you can gain access to dependent on weather and which volunteers are on duty . For  those interested in civil aircraft the Aero park has a viewing area almost touching the main runway at East Midlands Airport so plenty of takeoff and landing pics if thats your thing .A very modest entrance fee made it grey value ,not the largest museum ,but a nice selection of exhibits with plans to add items and a nice selection of models on display most of which were donated to the Aero Park recently by the family of one of the regular visitors when he sadly passed away . A small but well stocked shop with lots of second hand books and magazines as well .
