It certainly is looking good - even better from up on the #AvroScaffold.

It's all thanks to a lot of hard work from the guys and gals in the #WR977PaintingTeam :clap:

A quick Heads-Up about a one day closure of museum on Wednesday 22nd June, from the website:

“22.06.16 - Unforeseen One Day Closure

As we move ever closer to starting work on the installation of the new waste treatment system, it seems likely that the museum will need to close to the public for one day; and this has now been confirmed as taking place on Wednesday 22nd June 2016.

This unanticipated closure is required to allow for an upgrade to be completed our site electrical supply; and a key distribution board for the museum site electrics. Furthermore it has now been arranged to tie in with a significant disruption to our mains water supply, which will be occurring on the same date

We apologise in advance to any visitors who might have been planning to visit on that day. However as we do not have any special group visits booked in it made sense to close when we do not have appropriate facilities available. Undertaking this work quite early in the summer will also help to minimise disruption later during the busier school holiday period.”

Following the unanticipated closure today for water and electric work we’re back open at 10am tomorrow.

During the day today the F-86 Sabre departed following Cockpit-Fest and work is now progressing with the reapplication of markings on the Shackleton upper surfaces and fuselage; new photos in this gallery!

Work on upper surfaces of Shackleton WR977 has now been completed and the scaffolding has been removed; a strategy for under-wing and the remainder of fuselage will be implemented soon!

Everyone at the museum sends a huge thank you to #WR977PaintingTeam for completing the first part of this work in 12 weeks & 1 hour (don’t ask!) – more updates shortly!!

RAF Balderton

Post by NAM Updater »

Earlier today we launched an appeal relating to RAF Balderton in Nottinghamshire.

We are looking for information for a book that we hope to publish and details about what we are looking for can be found in here.

One specific request is detailed as follows: “At the moment we have a particular request for assistance in trying to locate the family of Ray Searle (author of 9J the story of a Squadron) – we understand that his son in called Richard and his daughter was Jill.”

Don’t let the downpours discourage you from a day out of aviation; lots to see indoors here in a damp Nottinghamshire!
