This place is amazing and well worth a look. This is a great place, not only for planes, but Tanks and other military vehicles. Planes are displayed really may hanging from the ceiling even massive V Bombers. It's a working RAF station as well as a terrific museum. It's also free to park and no entry fee.

It's worth going and not very far.

Went over 20 years ago and mean to go again. Would be a bit of a walk from the station though if I remember. You can get some views of the exhibition and move around on google at https://www.google.co.uk/maps/@52.644374...!7i13312!8i6656. they;ve got more modern buildings since I went there

Just been for a look round. I expected to be alone but there were other people there.
Nice gift shop but they wouldn't serve me.
Good link Mike.

There are some new Hangars, yes Mike unfortunately Cosford is a mile or so from the station. I only got there because I was on a coach trip. We did Cosford, Blist Hill Museum (also worth a look) and Ironbridge.
It was a good day but very wet.
