Jet Age Museum in Gloucestershire
In his “On This Day” blog, David has recently shown a picture of a Gloster Typhoon, taken at Gloster Factory in 1944. Having a special remembrance to this place, I thought I could show some of my pictures from a UK (Telford/Gloucester) trip in 2016 where I stopped by at some sites which have a close connection to our beloved hobby. The trip started with a visit at THE fair and continued with a stop at the aforementioned Jet Age Museum. It is a museum which was established on the historical ground belonging to former Gloster Factory. The people involved are extraordinary friendly with a deep knowledge showing us around in a private tour. If you have the opportunity, go there. It’s worth it. Have fun with these uploaded pictures!
(By the way, I bought an Airfix 1/48 Gloster Meteor kit at the museum shop. This is why I just decided this built to be the topic of my next article.)
