RAF Museum

A few weeks ago, just before the Farnborough Airshow, I visited the magnificent RAF Museum in London to practice photographing aircraft on display. I have been to this museum a few times and it never ceases to impress me with its scale and the quality of its exhibits. The fact that it is free to enter is remarkable, given what is on display. Modern and older aircraft are both represented within their huge exhibition halls. And everyone form the nice lady at the entrance gate to the staff inside are friendly, helpful and informative. Even if you are not interested in planes, there is an abundance of history to be learned. Indeed, the history of the United Kingdom would be very different were it not for the amazing Royal Air Force. I would definitely recommend that everyone pay this museum a visit.Below is a selection of my images, shot from a variety of angles, and some rendered black and white, to make them more interesting. I used mainly my Tokina 11-16mm F/2.8, and also my 35mm and 50mm primes for some closer shots.
