Normally Cosford is a 40minute drive for us. After 3 hours and still 4 miles of stationary traffic ahead we turned back. Best decision we could have made. Run by clueless idiots. Never again. Do not go.

Everything was great. We were in the Cosford club enclosure and had the most brilliant views of the displays. We were staying in Ironbridge. Taxi to Telford then train to RAF Cosford. Took us just over an hour in total, so not bad at all....More
