I mentioned back here (post about a WW2 Vet talk) that I would post some pics I took at the Darwin Aviation Heritage Centre that day. So here they are and you get to see some of what I saw.
I met a former work colleague who had retired a few years back at the centre and he was as keen as me to see the veteran talk and suggested if I had the time that the centre is always keen for volunteers. I don't have the time at the moment to join up but it would be a cool thing to be a part of. Time feels like something I have been short on lately but that is the lament of every gamer.
The museum is just outside the fence of RAAF Darwin. Very near the spot when Richard got wounded during a Japanese bomb raid.
The centre has expanded the shop area since the last time I visited and have a good selection of books with historic aviation theme at the core of course. I will have to go back and have another sticky beak in the future.

Question round. How many B-52 bombers are on public display in the world and where in the world are they?
