That was the most fantastic day I've ever had. It was great to be able to go on the Mosquito Simulator. I wasn't able to beat your score though. How do you do it?
I had a great day. I had to go to bed early because I was taking too much in!
I really enjoyed the museum... It was so much fun. Thanks.

I liked the aeroplanes and jumping out of the plane. Nana didn't want to jump, she went down the stairs.
I liked the helicopter and jumping out of the plane.
I liked wearing the aeroplane clothes and the helmet. Then we sat in an aeroplane.

My favourite part was the simulated bombing raid, which was very realistic. The smoke and sounds made the experience very enjoyable. I also enjoyed exploring the museum and looking at the planes.
This was my favourite outing at school ever! I hope that I come back next year for school.
My favourite part was the Solomon Island simulator when we had to jump into the trenches and heard all the big bangs and lights go off. I really enjoyed the part where we had to jump into the life raft and looked at the recue equipment and safety gear.

The Museum was so cool that I had two favourite things. One, the scavenger hunt that you did for us, it was awesome because you didn't just have one part, we got to do the whole museum. Two, that we got to go in a real plane!
To sum it up, I will call it an overall brilliant experience.
Well I learnt lots of stuff when we went in the museum. I was like Frankenstien, well more than Frankenstien, my head nearly exploded!
Thank you for being awesome, I really enjoyed the scavenger hunt and making planes, also the hangar was awesome, your friendliness was wonderful!!! I really want to come back soon.
I learnt so much about planes my brain might pop.
