Robin Would Be Shocked


Gail & I have been to Telford for the weekend, as it was my first meeting as a member of the Fiat 500 club. When we arrived a RAF Cosford, there were quite a few Fiats of differing models and colours. We met up for an escorted walk around the museum by Alf, a retired ex RAF man who was friendly and a knowledgeable guide, with a few funny stories about the planes and his time in the forces. Gail and I were surprised how well the museum is run with loads of different aircraft on show and how things were laid out. Just as a museum should be. She was amused, as they had called the main cafe "Refuel".
Here's one of those paintings that often appear on the sides of planes, and as there is a Nottingham connection in the name of Robin Hood's girlfriend, I had to take a photo. Although her face doesn't look very feminine though. In fact it reminds me of Phil Oakley; the lead singer with the Human League!
