Yorkshire Air Museum and Allied Air Forces Memorial

Former RAF Elvington is now home to a nice collection of Aircraft and vehicles covering pre WW2 up to recent times ,it is also the home to many memorials and displays  and boasts a rather fine restaurant so no excuse not to visit .The staff are mainly volunteers and are really helpful and informative and have "special days" when the engines on the DC 3 and Buccaneer are started up during our visit we were lucky to get a guided tour of the DC 3 Dakota complete with a taped recording of British Paras going into action from a Dakota after flying through flak .



..and inside ,its a very steep walk up to the cockpit

another Buccaneer 

yep Buccaneers
