Would this museum have a Website, and if so, how would one reach it?

There is  a museum in Britain in memory of those Americans who died
from Britain  with the USAAF.  The museum, which is superlative, is in 
Duxford,  England.

It commemorates the 30,000 USAAF men who died flying from  British
during WW2.

Inside the museum are fifty-two clear glass  plates, bearing images, in 
1/240 scale,, of each and every aeroplane that was  lost by the USAAF
from British fields.  There are seven thousand  and thirty-one, (7,031),

images in total.

We British, who lost a  similar number of airmen with the Royal Air
have never forgotten just  what all of this means ... never forgotten
blood, sweat, tears and sheer  terror of those who came over here from
United States and died in a common  cause, and those who grieved for
them many 
miles away.

If ever you are  in England, a visit would be very worthwhile. A bit of
haul for your  Corvairs, perhaps, but  ...
