Wings Aviation Museum

This is a Merlin engine, 1 of 4 recovered from a Handley Page bomber. The aircraft crashed in 1943, shot down over Germany. The engines remained buried in the ground until 2010 when they were recovered by the Germans who then passed them onto the MoD who then passed them onto the Wings Museum in Sussex. They have managed to restore this engine to working order whilst retaining 90% of the original components.

Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan Mosque


Abu Dhabi

I had the good fortune to have an old friend of mine that went to work in Abu Dhabi and was kind enough to have my wife and I visit on a few occasions.

So I have been able to visit the Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan Mosque a few times and it is simply a wonderful and inspiring place to visit.
