RIAT - internal contact required

Postby NickB on Thu 16 Feb 2017, 10:11 am

Hi there,
Bit of a long shot this, but does anyone have a contact at RIAT whose responsibility is around the airshow printed programme that they could share with me please?

The old Greenham Common ATC tower is being restored with a view to be opened to the public as a museum/coffee shop. I know many spotters have fond memories of the early Greenham Common IAT airshows and the thought is a RIAT airshow programme article might help drive awareness of the GC project and subsequent visitors etc.

Thanks in advance!

Nick

Thanks RIATMarketing.

The email might not come from me but from someone else involved in the tower resto.

Great stuff - thanks again! :smile:

Hi Nick, any news on when the tower will be finished? You've got a local here waiting to use the facilities... :smile:

I have a great fondness for anything involving Greenham Common. So much so that I have loaned all my Air Tattoo programmes, right back to 1973, photos and other material I have collected over the years to the committee who are restoring the tower. They came and collected it last year and have it safe apparently. I have been invited to the official opening which I understand now to be summer this year (finances permitting of course).Apparently they are going to be used for a specific Air Tattoo exhibition within the tower.
Coincidently, I made a visit enroute from a weekend away last week and for those who haven't seen it, this is what it looks like now. Apologies for the quality as they were taken on my phone camera.

A coffee shop in a control tower?

Can't wait.

Every control tower I've worked in have always had coffee (and more besides) on tap! :wink:

I agree, when the GC tower opens, it will be a great day :smile:
