There's currently lots of chatter on Twitter about the decision from earlier this week that the in-depth Harvard restoration project will eventually see the aircraft returned to the original RCAF markings it wore as FE930.

This will be in honour of the Canadian personnel who trained with 1661HCU at wartime RAF Winthorpe.

The museum is now trying to firm up the details of those wartime markings in Canada.

Look out for the museum on the The Gadget Show this evening; Channel 5 @ 7pm; it was used as a location for an item about Vlogging Tech.

We're not 100% certain of the content but there might be some possible coverage about our Puma rebuild on XW208!

NAM is in the first week of the local half-term holiday fortnight but it's also monitoring the ever changing Covid situation carefully and assessing what a possible move into Tier 3 might mean for the operation of its site with regards to: being able to open, and still operate the museum café and shop

Perhaps an early visit and some retail therapy might be a good option to any aviation enthusiasts.
