Air heads won’t want to miss one of Britain’s newest attractions: the Classic Air Force at the Newquay-Cornwall Airport in southwestern England. Billed as Britain’s only “living memorial” to the aircraft of the 1940s and 1950s, the CAF opened earlier this month. Among the “aeroplanes” in the fleet: the world’s oldest flying twin jet (a former RAF Gloster Meteor T.7) and three de Havilland Dragon Rapide biplanes, pictured, which are available for coastal flights down to Land’s End and back.
