It's fantastic how many aircraft are packed in to this space and one of them is the B52. You can walk among them. I was in there for about 1.5 hours.

Part of the Duxford Museum it is probably the greatest collection of American aircraft outside of the USA. Everything from the humble Curtis Jenny to the colossal B-52. See the worlds fastest and highest flying military aircraft. The SR-72. If you’re into America’s Military Aviation...More
