Not an aviation enthusiast but good


I'm not really an aviation geek but found this place really interesting. I was looking for something to do whilst in the city for business again and this was one of the few places in the city that my American colleagues could think of visiting where i'd not visited before. I'm glad they recommended this place. Even though i've never been into aviation i could appreciate the engineering and improvements in engineering over the years in aviation. Was completely free too, Bonus!!
