I am en route to the Other Partisan wargames show on Sunday. Looking for a suitable stop-off point, I realised I had never been to the South Yorkshire Aircraft Museum at Doncaster. This is another of those wonderful museums run by a dedicated band of enthusiasts.
They don't have a lot of space, so the typical outside plane exhibits are limited. Still, a decent collection, including:
|Hawker Hunter. This was an ex-Danish Air Force one.|
|Aermacchi MB 339. Captured at Port Stanley airfield.|
|RAF Harrier that served in the Falklands campaign|
The Falklands War is ever present in this museum with a dedicated area and plenty of exhibits as well as aircraft.
|Including this exceptional 1/96th scale model of HMS Hermes.|
|Cyprus UN helicopter base diorama|
|Bristol Sycamore. The first RAF helicopter.|
