Untitled[edit]

I visited the London site this year and I can say is a wonderful place.- Jor70 17:34, 7 June 2006 (UTC)

Possible split?[edit]

I see this article is not much loved! Although the article is not very big yet it would be very convenient if it were split into two articles for the Hendon and Cosford sites. The problem comes when I link in 'Engines on display' sections in aircraft engine articles, this will happen with aircraft articles as well soon. An example can be seen at Armstrong Siddeley Mamba where I just piped the link to indicate the Cosford site. Would be willing to expand both articles.

I'm for a split. It looks awkward with the two sites in one article. The Imperial War Museum and Imperial War Museum North provide a similar example. Grim23 (talk) 02:56, 5 August 2009 (UTC)

Good, will wait for others to add their thoughts. I see that someone has sensibly split the commons category in two. I 've spruced up a couple of aviation museum articles so I've got a reasonable idea of layout etc. Would be nice to include some history of the Hendon site as it was my father's first posting in the RAF, circa 1949. Coming from Shepherd's Bush he did not have very far to travel home!! Cheers Nimbus (Cumulus nimbus floats by) 09:29, 5 August 2009 (UTC)
Support split. Go ahead and do it! —  Tivedshambo  (t/c) 20:04, 7 October 2009 (UTC)
Funnily enough I had been thinking about this again recently after visiting both museums, it is logical to split them, just need to figure out how to do it cleanly. Might ask an admin to help with history merging, I'm on it. Cheers Nimbus (Cumulus nimbus floats by) 20:27, 7 October 2009 (UTC)
Moved and split as requested - just need the text sorted. Perhaps change the original Royal Air Force Museum to a dab page once it is sorted. MilborneOne (talk) 21:15, 7 October 2009 (UTC)

Our finest hour[edit]

The split is a good move and we can cover the museums properly now, I have seen the 'finest hour' showings, it needs to be described for the readers, quite stirring. Nimbus (Cumulus nimbus floats by) 02:20, 8 October 2009 (UTC)

Light railway speculation[edit]

The plan is just a proposal by a pressure group. Expected future events should only be included if the event is notable and almost certain to take place wp:crystal. These plans have been added to few articles in this area of north London by an editor who is involved with the group and might have a conflict of interest. Grim23 17:49, 8 October 2009 (UTC)

Ok, sounds fair. I just saw that it was referenced and appeared to be relevant to the museum. Don't worry about the big lists, I've got plenty of images to add (I won't be going mad though!). Cheers, I will take the railway bit out again for you. Nimbus (Cumulus nimbus floats by) 18:46, 8 October 2009 (UTC)
