NEWQUAY, ENGLAND - MARCH 28: A historic Jet Provost aircraft (below) flies alongside a Chipmunk plane at the Classic Air Force museum, based at Newquay Cornwall Airport, as it prepares to open its doors to the public for the first time tomorrow, on March 28, 2013 in Newquay, England. The museum will eventually home a collection of vintage aircraft - the Classic Air Force, the only collection of flyable post-1945 British aircraft - and will include among the collection, the oldest British jet capable of flight (a 1948 Gloster Meteor) and the Canberra jet bomber that obtained the World Altitude Record for Britain in 1957. In total around 30 aircraft will ultimately be based in the Classic Air Force hanger with pleasure flights offered in a range of aircraft including a 1930s-era Dragon Rapide.
