As part of our mission to do lots of family friendly day trips before Milo’s swimming starts up again, we went to the National Museum of Flight at the East Fortune airfield in East Lothian. Dave really likes planes, I’m not too fussed* but it was still a lovely day out! They have a Concorde you can go inside, which is pretty cool, and on a nice day it’s just nice to walk around the grounds, which are big and car free. And the kids activities building is excellent, lots of interactive experiments and games explaining how planes and navigation work, including a machine for launching paper planes!
* Especially fighter planes. Given that I basically don’t think they should exist, I’m really not very bothered by what type they are. I’m equally not particularly interested in what engine is in passenger planes, but I did enjoy all the context around the advertising and interiors and uniforms in the older planes
