City of Norwich Aviation Museum

The other day I took Matthew to the museum, to look at the planes. He is starting to become interested in all things mechanical, as well as animals and natural history.

The museum's Nimrod, from up close.

Some BAe146s stored in the airport boneyard. There were also some former Air France F70/F100s there last time I went past, but they have been removed.
