    display on the walls are also the Wings of Honor lists of patrons and aviation enthusiasts the heroes and the anonymous who keep this place alive shown side by side Part of the collection is also dedicated to Pylon Races such as the Reno National Air races And justly so because this institution is in part managed by the Hinton family which includes many great racers in particular Steve Hinton six times Reno Races winner in the 70 s and 80 s and the only pilot ever to win four races in a row His son Steve Hinton Jr won at Reno in 2009 aged 22 which makes him the youngest ever winner of this event Steve is also a survivor during the 1979 event his P51 Mustang Red Baron crashed and despite the impact and the ensuing fire he is still here to tell us about it We were also able to see Sea Fury n 232 belonging to the Lewis stables being prepared for the 2012 Reno National Air Races A real racing thoroughbred which just oozes power Sea Fury n 232 was to finish second overall in the Unlimited category behind Steve Hinton Jr in his P51 n 7 a result enabling him to equal his father s consecutive victories tally A hangar is also dedicated to 475th Squadron with a spotless and shiny P38 Lightning it is also in flying condition among other mementoes from this unit Finally as is often the case in the USA there is a bone yard which would leave any collector open mouthed There are aircraft of all descriptions all nationalities and all eras Some are in relative good condition others are rather a collection of spare parts There is even a Belgian F104 Starfighter T his visit would not have

  • Cosford: British prototype nest
    like the Gloster Javelin Lightning Canberra Metor NF 14 but also foreign aircraft of the same instable period like the F 111 or Russian Mig 21 Some armored vehicles of the cold war are also exposed in this hall The War planes hall presents some aircraft from the different conflicts where the Royal Air Force was involved The visitor can see the Harrier Falkland and of course the Spitfire Hurricane Lancaster Mosquito of the second world war Some allied aircraft like the P 51D are also exposed but the most interesting is certainly a range of enemy aircraft like Me 163 Komet Me 410 Japanese Dinah Ki 100 or Yokosuka Ohka until the most recent the FMA Pucara The last hall called Hangar 1 is dedicated to aircraft that we can qualify as very British like the Gnat Anson Devon Sycamore Pembroke Varsity and other Provost In fact British made transport or training aircraft The inventory wouldn t be complete without the big planes exposed outside like a Neptune C 130 Britannia and the latest acquisition a Nimrod who was still not re assembled at the time of my visit But this incredible inventory would be nothing without the mention of the Michael Beetham Conservation Centre which is in fact the restoration and conservation center for both Hendon and Cosford Museum During my visit they were working on a Sea Harrier a Wellington and the reconstruction of a unique Handley Page Hampden but this part is unfortunately not accessible for the general public I present you my favorites the list is certainly incomplete but I can only hope that this encourages you to visit this beautiful museum which proves once again that the United Kingdom is definitely the country of aviation heritage The museum English Electric Lightning P1 A English
