It certainly does look to be shaping up nicely - we've also added an event update to the website today for the Falkland 40th / Cold War Call Up event that same weekend!

Unfortunately, we had an incorrect date on our original News Release & website listing for the timing of the RAF EOD Memorial dedication in the Memorial Garden & the formal unveiling of the EOD Display in Hangar 2.

It's on Sunday 1st May at 11am!

Hi NAM Updater and everyone.

Well we are almost there and I'm really looking forward to meeting everyone again at the first Aeroboot Sale of the season.

Hi NAM Updater

Well... an absolutely superb opening event today at NAM in splendid weather... the weather God's were certainly on our side.

Great atmosphere in and around the main event and a very enjoyable day on the stall at the Aeroboot.

Got a little sunburnt by the end of the day. :D

My thanks to all who stopped by my stall... its very much appreciated.

See you all again soon.

I note in your list of cockpits on your website of those cockpits on show, you have XN979 listed.

This Buccaneer cockpit is in fact an engineering rig, just called "XN979" by Carolyn and her son Marcus, who are restoring it.

Thanks for the feedback - will double check with our Cockpit-Fest organiser; the items on the museum website are purely based on what he sends through! :thumb:

I sense that an update might be imminent!

Thanks.
Marcus is doing a superb restore job, especially when you consider his age as a youngster.

He certainly is - I had a long chat with him last August and his knowledge of the project is brilliant.

His negotiating skills whilst going round the Aeroboot with his little hand pulled cart are also something top behold! :thumbs:

A revised event programme for the second half of 2022 has just been announced, this is after reluctantly deciding to cancel the late August event, due to lack of participants.

Also we now have no plans for an Indoor Aeroboot / Aerojumble in the autumn, however an outdoor sale will run alongside a Shackleton WR977, 65th Anniversary event on 10 September!
