Re: Newark Air Museum News 2020

Our initial step back to normality starts today, with our first few members of staff coming back after furlough. This is part of a slow process, but this will change a bit more tomorrow with our new Order & Collect system starting as well.

Re: Red Arrows New Base?

We're looking forward to being able to start welcoming people back - the current aim is for limited reopening of the Museum Shop in early June (assuming the non-essential retail guidelines don't change) - small steps and all that - still more paperwork and control measures to put in place! :clap:

Details added to the museum website about the unit markings that are going to be applied to the F-100 Super Sabre later this year.

Here’s hoping for some interest from the 494th TFS at Lakenheath!
