Newark Air Museum News 2021

Post by NAM Updater »

It’s time to start a 2021 Newark Air Museum News thread, through which I will endeavour to keep people advised of the day to day activities at NAM.

Again on behalf of everyone at Newark Air Museum I would just like to say a BIG THANK YOU to everyone who visited in 2020 and supported the museum during a challenging year.

Details will continue to be added both here and to the – Latest News Page on the NAM website.

Happy New Year everyone and at a convenient time would it be possible for a kindly Mod to lock the 2020 NAM News thread & pining this one?

Final reminder for now, NAM is closed currently due to Tier 4 Regulations.

Any model makers amongst you may have seen that the new box art for the Airfix Vulcan features XM594 that we display at Newark; the aircraft being on loan from the Lincolnshire’s Lancaster Association.

For us this is a long anticipated release, after we provided access for the Airfix team to scan and photograph the aircraft back in spring 2019.

We are now looking forward to getting the kits into stock in the Museum Shop and then being able to sell them! Delivery is down on the order forms for March 2021, when we should have them in stock. However, that could still change. Pre-orders can be taken!

Lots of tweets and emails arriving at the museum's accounts regarding the availability of some V-bomber cockpits - sorry, not on our radar folks!

We had some limited dialogue with the owner late last summer after they had been featured in FlyPast magazine. At that time it became apparent very quickly that the price expectations were beyond the museum's means, even without the effects of the lockdown restrictions on the museum's income.

There has been some interest expressed in possible Mail Order sales from the Museum Shop, so we’ll be taking telephone enquiries on 01636 707170 from 09.45 to 11.45am on Saturday 30th January 2021 – for models, die-casts & aviation books.

A mini-update has been added to the museum website to outline how we will plan for re-opening our Gateway Aviation Site sometime in mid-April 2021.

Lots to be sorted out & agreed!!
