The Mrs and I went to London in 2009 and i took the occation to wisit the IWM (only being informed of RAF-Museum in Hendon, North-London after returning home).
The interior of the museum is quite high wich gives space for suspended aircrafts.
With exception of the green V2 rocket, wich gives a perception of size due to the bystanders, I'll let the pictures stand alone!

Thank you Armand. Great pictures. I believe my favorite is the one with the Camel up close and all the armor and artillery down below. :)

I've been there quite a few times ... nice museum!

 

I took most of the pictures on my first visit in March 2008. Here is an album I've made

 

My favorite is always the FW 190 ;)

If I only had brought my crystal Ball, I would have foreseen my SAM posting and captured the Bloodhound, wich is barely to see in the bottom of the Spitfire-picture, thoroughly :-(

It's NOT the RAF-museum at Hendon, it's the IWM -London located south of river Thames!

I just noticed: Paolo and I have the exact same photo - except from I might be about 3" higher (and the crowd of visitors) ;-)
