Newark Air Museum News 2018

Post by NAM Updater » Mon Jan 01, 2018 11:58 am

As with previous years I thought I’d create a new Newark Air Museum News thread to use for short updates and news snippets from eastern Nottinghamshire.

As the year progresses I will provide updated details of museum activities in here!

This could include such things as the Indoor Aeroboot / Aerojumble Table Top Sale – 3 March 2018; etc., other event news, new arrivals etc. which can also be found in here!

Many thanks to those people who have visited the museum in 2017 and we hope to see you again this year and a Happy New Year to you all.

Whilst the museum is closed today (1 January) we’re back open at 10am tomorrow, Tuesday 2 January 2018. We have an exciting few months ahead as we finally get ready to install the new café & toilet facility on the Southfield Site, which is land that he museum purchased back in 1995. #NAMdeveloping

If you’re visiting us this weekend it’s best to approach the museum along Drove Lane from the A17 direction; it’s the Carole Nash Classic Bike Guide Winter Classic event on Showground & it may get busy by the A46 junction.

We’re open as normal both days – access advice in here!

We have now uploaded some more photos to the Viggen Valet gallery – we feel that the 1st painting session was a success, more coats will be required & the right temperature/humidity are essential for a good ‘paint refreshment’ job to be completed!

Here’s the link to the gallery!

If anyone is thinking of visiting tomorrow please approach long Drove Lane from the A17 direction as there’s an Autojumble event on the Showground – likely to be busy!!

Copies of our recently published book Station of Nations – The History of RAF Balderton can now be purchased from the Museum Shop.

Why not visit our Indoor Aeroboot/Aerojumble Sale on Saturday & buy a copy of the book as well?

This year the museum is once again participating in the BBC Big Day Out campaign, which provides free admission to a host of tourist attractions in Nottinghamshire Further information in this BBC PDF file N.B. you’ll need the print-out if you want to gain the free admission offer with us.

On Sunday we will have several aircraft / cockpits open – small donation is requested to access each one; all proceeds going towards the restoration of museum aircraft; – open cockpit details in here!

Quick reminder that during our Tribute to the V-Force event tomorrow we’ll be undertaking (subject to serviceability) a Rover APU engine run on Vulcan XM594; we’re also due to have a BBMF Dakota flypast as well (also subject to the usual BBMF caveats & final BBMF call that I’m expecting today).

Addendum: BBMF now confirmed, but you'll need to be early to catch the Dakota, we're their first tasking of a busy day!

There’s around 60 former V-Force personnel due to attend and lots of visiting displays!

Here’s the quick guide to what’s happening!! http://www.newarkairmuseum.org/V-Force_ ... uick_Guide

Following overnight discussions we have amended our ‘Hot Weather’ advice for visitors to the museum site & this has now been broadened to include some Open Cockpit information. For the most part this relates to the aircraft that are outside and in particular to the Vulcan, which will not be open until the temperatures drop to more comfortable levels.
