Is the Yorkshire Air Museum indoors or outdoors?
Yorkshire Air Museum is one of the largest independent museums of aviation in the United Kingdom. The museum sits on the former site of RAF Elvington in North Yorkshire, a World War II airfield used extensively by Allied Bomber crew during the war. It is a registered charity dedicated to the history of aviation which was also set up as a Memorial to all allied air forces personnel, particularly those who served in the Royal Air Force during WWII. There is so much to see and do there. Some highlights include the authentic WWII Bomber Command site with original buildings, the only complete restored Halifax Bomber aircraft in Europe and one of the rare reproductions of the Cayley Glider, the first British manned flying vehicle.
