    An enjoyable visit but didn't manage to see it all before I crashed in the cafe for a well needed cuppa and giant bourbon home-made biscuit! And of course a friendly chat with some fellow cultureseekers. Will have to go back another day to see the rest. The free guided tour was a hoot too!

      Wish I'd been able to join you, Christine! Also wish I had a pound for every time we've run out of time/energy before completing a museum! x x

      Oh so true Meredith! I still can't finish a visit anywhere - I tend to savour every corner of a place and then a coffee shop crosses my path......chatting with members of the group.... And then it's time to leave. Still have to return to Bletchley to finish that visit! When are you coming down to the smoke to catch up with your old pals? We miss you. Hope all is going well in SoT! xx

    A well chosen venue, Robert. Thank you.
    I wasn't a gatecrasher; ...I already had the RAF Museum event in my own diary when one of your group told me you had the MeetUp scheduled and suggested I should join.

    Hi Robert, I got there too late to find you - I tried phoning at about 2pm. Horrid traffic, it's taken me till now to get home (to my computer!). I solemnly swear never to drive anywhere in London on Saturday ever again. Nightmare experience. Hope the visit went well. It looked an amazing place from my very brief stop there!

    I was at the museum yesterday with my brother who is visiting. It was quite poignant and certainly brought back shared memories of past years.

    I'm sorry that I will not be joining you all this time. Look forward to a future meetup with this group. Enjoy...

    Great fun but I am on a trip to Brunei or rather the Brunei Gallery. Chocks away!!

    I'd like to go if I'm feeling up to it. My dad was in the Air Force so the museum would definitely hold a great significance for me.

    I'm away for a week so will have to miss this . Will see everyone soon

    I'll be driving there, so I'll meet you by the entrance to the main building, not at the tube station.

    Another site to add to my "must see" list when I visit London in August. I have been to the national air museum in Washington DC, and there is a flight museum in Seattle, so this will be an exciting place to spend some time.

    Great place to visit. But I've been there twice recently, on the second occasion taking some (impressed) American guests. Figure out your priorities and/or keep moving - the place is HUGE with several separate buildings to the main halls, which can be missed without care.... Strongly recommended.
