Re: Remove Before Flight Trademark?

There are several long standing suppliers of such embroidered items that might be interested in those trademark awards.

The Newark Air Museum Shop has been purchasing such items from one of them for at least 7 years!

Re: Remove Before Flight

I was once involved in an international industrial trademark/copyright case and much of the evidence was based around intellectual property on the basis of 'Prior Art', which might be applicable in this situation.

Have you followed the web-links on your vaccination card?

They will get you to this page https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavir ... e-effects/ and you're best to call 111 if you're not getting good advice from your doctor.

Looks can be deceptive, lots of work currently underway on the MiG-27 & perhaps soon on the MiG-23 - some of it is featured in here http://www.newarkairmuseum.org/2021_Work_Gallery When the right volunteers are on site we may have open cockpit viewing ...

Re: Aircraft in the movies...Black Widow

Shame that one of the Hungarian Mi-8s wasn't saved, would have looked very nice alongside the two fast-jets. Obviously plenty of other considerations as to why you didn't take it though, of course. Numerous reasons spring to mind: the airframe that were offered didn't fit with our Collecting Policy...

Re: Aircraft in the movies...Black Widow

I am able to confirm that the MiG-23 & MiG-27 aircraft that we have on loan were taken off site in September 2019 for filming as part of what was then 'Project Blue Bayou' - our exhibits were selected as we had valid deactivation paperwork in place for their 'safe' handling. I acted as the liaison f...

The Pfizer situation may be a regional issue - yesterday across Nottingham / Nottinghamshire walk-in appointments were being notified via the local radio stations; plus there was a campaign to assist with the low uptake and vaccine hesitancy in some areas of the city.
