Foynes Flying Boat Museum

Any photos, plans, drawings, directions, helpful hints on visting places where flying boats have been operated from historically, or are being operated from today. I am always interested in receiving 'Then & Now' type photographs to assist current day visitors to these place. I'm trying to record the best places to visit before they disappear for ever.

Has anyone been to visit? Is it worth the trip. I will be in England for a month and might sneek over.

visited in 1996 long before they did the Boeing replica and it was excellent. Would be even better now. And don't forget the Southhampton museum and Beachcomber exhibit!

Here is the link to the Sandringham in the Southhampton Hall of aviation. Definitely worth a visit.
Flight deck tours can be arranged I think.
