It’s that time of the week once again, back to work or school after a blissful weekend off. Nothing to look forward to… but wait … It's no money Monday!

This week, NMM takes us to the beautiful Aerodrome of Duxford. Just 8 miles from Cambridge this beautiful Aerodrome hosts some of the most historic and incredible aircraft some of which still take to the skies. Home of the Imperial War Museum, Duxford attracts thousands of visitors each year. Exhibits in Duxford include an SR71 Blackbird, B-52 Stratofortress and even the first ever Concorde prototype the famous 01 or 101 as it's officially known due to computer systems which had trouble recognising 2-digit serial numbers in those days. The Museum at Duxford hosts a vast array of aircraft that would leave your jaw on the floor. Aircraft that regularly fly around Duxford are “Sally B” a B-17G Flying Fortress, a beautiful PBY-5A Catalina and an entire fleet of second world war fighters such as Mustangs and Spitfires. Duxford really is a one-of-a-kind airfield.
