Meet at the “Truckstop” on the Southbound M6– this is just over the Thelwall viaduct on the M6 at Jn 20 – at 9.45 for departure at 10am prompt. The route takes us down the M6 to Jn 15 (33 miles) then cross country to RAF Cosford (approx 26 miles). This will get us to the museum at approx 11.15.
The museum entry is free but there is a parking charge (payable in a machine so you will need change) of £2.50 for up to 3 hours or £3.50 for over 3 hours. Jim Edwards did this run 2 or 3 years ago and some people stayed all afternoon as there is a lot to look at. The museum has 2 places to eat with one being more coffee shop and the other serving meals. There are picnic tables outside if you want to bring your own food.
An organised return run is not proposed as people will stay for different amounts of time.
I have also invited the members from Lanc’s and Cheshire Regions to join us so we should have quite a turnout for this one.
Note for those departing from the Blackpool area I will be at the Tickled Trout services at 9.00am and will leave at 9:15 for the next pickup at the Truckstop on the M6
The Royal Air Force Museum Cosford is located in Shropshire and offers a fun, entertaining day out for all the entire family. Situated next to an active airfield, this is the only place in the Midlands where you can get close to so many breathtaking aircraft for free.
Over 70 aircraft of international importance are housed in three Wartime Hangars and within the National Cold War Exhibition. See the world’s oldest Spitfire and a Lincoln Bomber, just two of the highlights in the War in the Air Collection. In Test Flight, there is the TSR2 and Bristol Type 188 constructed from stainless steel. The Transport Collection in Hangar 1 includes the Comet 1A and Gnat T1, previously used by the Red Arrows. The engine and missile collections total over 60 and are arguably one of the finest collections in the world.
In 2007 the £12.5 million National Cold War Exhibition was opened at Cosford by Her Royal Highness Princess Anne. This land mark building truly has the ‘wow’ factor with its eye catching architecture and design. A number of the 19 aircraft are suspended in flying attitudes. Iconic cars, models, audio visual hotspots and life-size Russian (Matryoshka) dolls, tell the story of the Cold War in an innovative way. This is the only place in the UK where you can see Britain’s three V Bombers: the Vulcan, Victor and Valiant.
Andy and Shirley’s youngest daughter Amy and six of her friends had arranged a limo to take them to their school prom but this has fallen through and they are struggling to find anything else available. Andy and Shirley are now taking Amy & her closest friend in their two TVRs. Any’s friend has also offered to take another girl in his T350. Heath and Dave Welton have also offered to take two more of Amy’s friends. That leaves us with two more seats to find and I wondered if two more of our members could help out. The prom run would be from Edenfield to the Dunkenhalgh Hotel in Clayton-le-moors (Jct 7 M65). The date is 2nd July (Thursday) and we’re looking at picking them up around 6pm, maybe have a stop somewhere to line the cars up for a photo call and then arrive at the Dunkenhalgh for 7pm. Andy has offered to cover petrol costs. If you can help please contact me and I will inform Andy and Shirley Thanks Dave Welton
Keith Hulme has also now offered his services so we only need one more
