Hi,

Last week we called in to have a look around the Solway Aviation Museum, which is situated alongside Carlisle Airport (formerly RAF Crosby-on-Eden).

After having a look at their Vulcan - XJ823 - which looks in great condition, amazing considering it's been parked up since 1983, we headed over to the main museum area for a look at their exhibits. Following this we headed back over to the Vulcan, where we clambered up the steps for a guided tour of the cockpit area.

While we were there, we didn't pass up the opportunity to have a quick peek through the airport's fence, where we saw a great little Miles Messenger (G-AKBO) and a smart three-engined Falcon jet of the 1970s.
