I'll post pictures here of different visits, as the museum staff, like in supermarkets, move stuff around to keep you guessing.
Detail shots will go into the 'walkaround' section.

First, the military hanger.

There's a few there that need some wind beneath their wings.

That big yeller Bolingbroke,the Loganair Beech 18 and that beautiful Dove for starters.

The G.A Cygnet probably not,I think it's the only one left out of not many built,though a flight simming mate would more than

likely commit murder for a go in it.

His mate owns the last remaining Chrislea Super Ace and flies it regularly.

Wow! Cygnet and Ace are both on my scratch-build list (Ace maybe by hacked-about Auster). I've read that the Ace had 'innovative' and 'simplified' controls!  I imagine jumping into an Ace for a flight straight from a Cesspipe or somesuch ordinary flapper might be a bit disorientating.
Having driven some vintage motors with pre-selector box and centre throttle pedal, I know changing the habits of a lifetime can be a life-threatening experience. You know what just driving an auto box is like after a stick-stirrer the first time you have to press the brake pedal (American drivers look away now)!

If you're on Fizzogbook,I can put you onto my mate and you can ask him.

AFAIK,the Ace lives at Eggesford in Chumleigh,Devon I know there's a Skyjeep there for certain.

They also keep a lot of Austers there,my mate flew an AOP.9 upto Cosford Airshow a few years back.
