    Nice pics Phil, looks a good place I've been to a similar place up here in Scotland, to view the concorde they have in East Fortune flight museum ! They never had stealth bombers or lancaster bombers though, they would be cool to see

    Nerd hat back on: That's an SR71 spyplane. No bombs, all it did was fly very high, very fast and take pictures. Phased out by satellites, I should imagine. Apparently when on the ground fuel used to leak out of it because of the gaps between the body panels. The gaps were big to allow for expansion of the metal (titanium), because the plane flew so fast it got very hot.
