Plane enthusiasts can start to get excited as a civil and military aircraft museum announced it will reopen.
The de Havilland Aircraft Museum in Salisbury Hall, London Colney, will be reopening to the public on Saturday, July 11 after it was shut because of the coronavirus pandemic.
A number of safety measures have been introduced into the museum ahead of the reopening, including a one-way visitor flow and the introduction of hand-sanitiser stations to help people maintain good hygiene. Toilets will also be open at the museum.

The gift shop will also be open and refreshments can be purchased at the café and outdoor ranch tables.
Museum marketing director Mike Nevin said: "We will be open five days a week, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday, in July, increasing to six days a week from August.
“Visitors can be assured that they will be able to tour our museum’s spacious display hangars, our new one built with National Lottery Heritage Fund support as part of our Museum for the 21st Century project, which are fully accessible and also see our larger airliners on outside display, whilst following our one-way route and observing the social distancing guidelines.”
Visitors can also pre-book admission tickets through a new E-ticketing system, and on admission people will be asked to fill out the NHS test and trace form.
There will also be free parking at the museum.
