Map of UK Aviation Sites

Post by Andrewc » Thu Feb 16, 2017 12:30 pm

Hello,

I have been working on a Google Map listing aviation related sites in the UK (Museums, Memorials & Gate Guardians).

The map can be viewed at https://www.classicwarbirds.co.uk/aviat ... orials.php

There are currently 400 locations listed with more to add.

If you know of any locations I have missed please let me know at http://www.classicwarbirds.co.uk/about- ... t-form.php

Thanks
Andrew

Hello,

I did receive your email but when replying it said the email address was unknown.

Please send me the details of the other two memorials when you get them.

Many Thanks

Excellent idea Andrew.
You can add the Norfolk county council offices in Norwich, where Jag XW563 is preserved.
