Re: RAF BAE146 to SWAM & Duxford

For the sake of completeness it's perhaps best not to forget the UKHAT 'target airframe' at Gatwick! :innocent:

Re: RAF BAE146 to SWAM & Duxford

It is reported elsewhere that DAS should be announcing details of the Herald's new home later this week - I can place on record (despite some speculation) that it is not coming to Newark.

Re: The UKAR politics thread

Hmmm. The Ministry of Defence, where these decisions are made, is a government department and is led by a politician; currently Ben Wallace.

Newark Air Museum Events 2022

Just realised NAM's 2022 event thread was lost late last year!

The call for participants to attend our 40th Falklands & Cold War Call Up event have been circulated & outline details added to our website, which we hope might be of interest!
