I 'm going to be in London for 2 days. This Sunday and Monday. Does anybody have any suggestions for maybe a day trip not to far or in London itself, that would be worthwhile for an Commercial Aviation enthusiast.

Brooklands Museum would be good, less than an hour from central London. See Concorde, a VC10, Vanguard, Viscount etc plus loads of motor racing stuff if you are in to that as well. http://www.brooklandsmuseum.com/

Quoting tymnbalewne (Reply 7): I went to Duxford about 100 years ago, (okay, it was 1986) and there was a VC-10 there. I looked at the website and find no mention of this aircraft. Is it no longer there?

If you get the chance to go back to London in the future, you may want to look at the BA Heritage Centre in Waterside. You need to email ahead for a visitors pass if you don't have a BA ID, but it is worth the visit.
