Not long ago I volunteered to be a guide at the Jet Age Museum in Gloucester. The museum is mainly for Gloster aircraft but include others, most notably for me a Vulcan cockpit.
Before starting volunteering I assumed most volunteers would be like me, ex aircraft technicians. It appears that most are aviation enthusiasts with no aviation technical background.
I find the public have an appetite for first hand knowledge on the exhibits. If, like me you enjoy talking about aircraft and have a fund of stories (who hasn’t) it is great fun and gratifying to show people around.
