Re: Newark Air Museum News 2021

A gentle reminder that we're still open 7 days a week 10am until 4pm(last admission at 3pm) - and despite the poor weather yesterday we hosted a reasonable number of visitors who braved the windy conditions!

Does it add anything to the FullFact article I posted a few days ago? That was from this month, iirc.

Re: COVID-19: Your Thoughts and it's effects on you.

Following discussions about these parts on the topic of whether or not vaccination helps reduce transmission, I came across this item that was published in New Scientist last month!

Re: COVID-19: Your Thoughts and it's effects on you.

Some fascinating thoughts on BBC Radio Nottingham this morning whilst driving to the museum, about the new variant!

Worth checking the Twitter feed of this Nottingham University professor, who specialises on emerging viruses!

Re: Newark Air Museum News 2021

Thank you to the Mods for reactivating the account following the recent outages, would it be possible to unpin the 2020 News thread and to pin this one?

We have some interesting times coming up and it would be nice to keep this thread as accessible as possible!

My pleasure Doughnut, it forms part of the transparency expected from the Accreditation process and it does genuinely guide part of our decision making process, especially when dealing with third party/external exhibit offers.

I am not going to get into the emotive subject about the rights and wrongs of whether aircraft should be flown or not; but I do respect everyone's opinions and views. That said I would like to add that NAM was approached about the Desford, not the other way round. Also, for the sake of openness, I h...
