Newark Air Museum News 2019

Post by NAM Updater »

As with previous years I thought I’d create a new Newark Air Museum News thread to use for short updates and news snippets from eastern Nottinghamshire.

As the year progresses I will provide updated details of museum activities in here!

This could include such things as the Indoor Aeroboot / Aerojumble Table Top Sale – 13 April 2019; etc., other event news, new arrivals etc. which can also be found in here!

Many thanks to those people who have visited the museum in 2018 and we hope to see you again this year and a Happy New Year to you all.

Could a Moderator please lock the 2018 Newark Air Museum News thread?

Whilst the museum has been closed today (1 January) we’re back open at 10am tomorrow, Wednesday 2 January 2019.

If anyone is planning to visit the museum this weekend you’d best approach from the A17 direction as the Carole Nash Classic Bike Winter Show is being held on the Showground; the usual access advice applies!

Also be aware that from next week, for about six months there is a rolling set of overnight road works that will be in place around the Newark bypass & the A1/A46/A17 roundabout complex; typically these could be in place between 8pm and 5.30am!

thanks for the road works info Howard, we now come off at the next junction at Coddington and come in from the other end, so much easier that negotiating the roundabout :biggrin:

My pleasure, always keen to assist if I can. The route that you described is one of the best that you can take if there's an event on the Showground, it cuts out lots of queues and driving 'challenges' on the other roundabout complex! These road works are supposed to try and ease some of those problems/issues. :up:

That sounds good, allow plenty of time for traffic around Newark on a Friday as it can be a bit congested!

That's always a good plan, it's a pity that the museum is not signed from that direction as it might save people a lot of hassle!

Sad to have to report the theft of several items of avionics from Canberra T17 cockpit WH863 that’s currently on loan to the museum – further details can be found in this weblink: http://www.newarkairmuseum.org/Theft_from_Canberra_T17

We hope that the wider aviation community will help us track down these stolen items.

A quick heads-up that work will commence tomorrow, Wednesday 28the August, to dismantle the MiG-23 & MiG-27 aircraft ready for their temporary departure from the museum.

Both aircraft are on long-term loan at Newark and the owner has requested their temporary return, we anticipate they will be off site for all of September!
