Cockpit-Fest 2016 – 18 & 19 June 2016

Post by NAM Updater » Thu Apr 14, 2016 5:18 pm

Details of the first feedback from exhibitors at this event have just been posted on the museum website, so I thought it would be a good time to start this thread.

Cockpit-Fest is a regular feature in the aviation calendar and this year it is scheduled to take place on Saturday 18th and Sunday 19th June 2016 at the museum. The event allows people to get close up to many cockpit restoration projects.

As the event draws closer I will try to provide updates to advise what is going to happen, what is being exhibited and I will also try to answer any questions that may arise. The event also features an outdoor Aeroboot / Aerojumble aviation sale.

Seems to have gone well today at Cockpit-Fest & Aeroboot - best Saturday visitor figures since 2011!

We have added a gallery in here - a few random views from today http://www.newarkairmuseum.org/2016_Coc ... st_Gallery

Looking forward to another great day tomorrow, gates open at 10am!

Hi NAM Updater

Yes... an absolutely fabulous day, really enjoyed every minute... great stall holder turn out, brilliant Spitfire Flypast directly over the top of my stall :clap: .

Everybody having a great time, lots of customers at the stall buying things and engaging in great conversation.

My thanks and appreciation to all the Team at NAM for all the hard work and effort put in to making this another fantastic event and to the BBMF Pilot for bringing P7350 smack over the top of my stall... :thumb:

Thanks again NAM Updater for all your help... look forward to seeing you at the October event.

Kind regards
