It was done once, many years ago and at dusk - I'll have a search of my archive for the photos I took! :up:

Different times though!!

Could it be done again if the funds were there, or is it not the funds that matters?

Sadly not the funds! :sad:

I'm talking of about 1980/81 - only four or five years after it was flown in. Plus even if its current location allowed such actions to be contemplated (and they don't) the logistics of getting everything checked through and sorted would be huge!

I will look for the photos though.

Nice photos on here though!! :up:

Wow that would have been amazing to see the Hastings run!
I forgot to mention how well kept the aircraft were, I was very impressed especially considering how small your volunteers team is! Its nice to see a well kept museum and not just a place for aircraft to go and die! Aircraft like the Hastings still look in incredible condition considering it's been there 30 years plus
Definitely one to come back to!

Hi Johnathan Glad I was able to help on the shots it was nice for the company. The Hastings and Shack shots came out particularly well. There is certainly plenty to shoot at the museum. I'll post some of mine tonight.
