million associated items. In particular, look out for the Star Vehicles, 20 very special ones with marques such as Daimler, Humber, Singer, Standard and Rover. Then it’s not far to the overnight hotel just outside Warwick.

D

Day 2 Sunday

Enthusiasts started a Preservation Society in 1967 and it grew to become the Midland Air Museum some 10 years later. Significant developments were marked by the arrival of a Vulcan bomber and an
Argosy freighter in the 1980s, moving to its present site and establishing the Sir Frank Whittle Jet Heritage Centre. Other notable exhibits include a MiG-21, a Sea Harrier ‘jump jet’ and a CMC Leopard. Altogether the Jet Age makes a fascinating story. Homeward journey in the afternoon/evening.

B

B=Breakfast, D=Dinner

A new arrangement for 2020 especially for transport enthusiasts. The visits take place round Coventry, traditionally an important centre of the motor industry plus the manufacture of aircraft parts, (factors which contributed to the almost total destruction of a fine medieval centre and its Cathedral in the Blitz) On Saturday the Coventry Transport Museum is home to one of the largest collections of British road transport in the world. On Sunday the Midland Air Museum commemorating

the inventor of the jet engine, Sir Frank Whittle. In between, overnight in the pleasant countryside near Warwick.
