Many museums across Nottinghamshire opened their doors or gates for free today, as part of a scheme called 'The Big Day Out'. Some places we had been to, some didn't really interest us, but I was quite excited when I read that the air museum at Newark was on the list.
It was somewhere I'd quite fancied going to for a while & it was even better as the sun was shining all day. I took quite a number of photos, but I think this Vulcan bomber was the most impressive. The Vulcan was one of the three 'V' bombers from the Cold War of the 1950's. The Victor and Valiant being the other two. They lasted until the early 1970's when newer planes like the Jaguar were introduced.
