RAF Cosford Museum - Conservation Centre Open Week

Recommended Posts

Today I went to RAF Cosford as it opened the doors to the Michael Beetham Conservation Centre. You can see where they work on the aircraft and chat to the guys (and girl) who help restore the exhibits.


We had a good couple of hours looking around the different exhibits which included a Sopwith Dolphin, Hadley Page Hampden, Spitfire and of course the Wellington Bomber from Hendon.


Below are a few picture's from the open day.

Great pics. Would have gone, goes to show should have a diary on local goings on.



Good shout! The next one is in March sometime, will post up details when I know more as its worth a visit.


Great pics Smithy av you any pic's of the Hampden


No sorry. At the moment all they really have is the cockpit shell and there were too many people around it to get a good enough picture. I was speaking to one of the guys involved with restoring it and he said that they expect it to be finished by 2018.
