Get inside the Cockpit of an Avro Vulcan B.2 XL360

Ian Kerr shot a panorama inside the cockpit of an Avro Vulcan B.2 XL360 at the Midland Air Museum in Coventry, England. It was once England’s Detroit, with numerous manufacturers building their marques in the vicinity; Jaguar, Rover, Triumph, Chrysler, Peugeot, Alvis, Daimler, Hillman, Rootes, Humber, Morris, Maudslay, Armstrong Siddeley, Standard, Lea Francis, Calcott, White & Poppe and so on and so on. Sadly all the major players have removed their manufacturing from the city. During WWII Coventry also produced military aircraft.

“The access I was granted is available to any visitor to this museum; perhaps it is unique in that everyone is encouraged to take the guided tour up the steel ladder into the aircraft, one and all is given the privilege of a hands-on look inside this and other aircraft; in fact I had to compete for space with a stream of patient visitors. Midland Air Museum is an interactive museum expertly run by dedicated enthusiasts – not to be missed”.

    After I originally commented I appear to have clicked on the -Notify me when new
    comments are added- checkbox and now whenever a comment is added I get 4
    emails with the exact same comment. There has to be a way you are able to remove me from that service?
    Thanks!
