    Newark Air Museum Briefing – 2017

    It’s time to start a 2017 Newark Air Museum Briefing 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 2016 and in so doing helped NAM achieve a good year for visitors; albeit down slightly as compared to 2015. The associated income is being used to allow the museum to continue to undertake more restoration work and site development projects.

    Details will continue to be added to the – Latest News Page on the website.

    Also, details about the other events such as the Indoor Aeroboot / Aerojumble Table Top Sale – 4 March 2017; etc. can be found here on the Events Page.

    Happy New Year everyone and at a convenient time would it be possible for a kindly Mod to lock the 2016 Briefing thread?

    Final reminder for now; NAM is shut today, Sunday 1st January, but back open at 10am on Monday 2nd January.

      That's good to hear ~Alan~ and I know that you'll be made very welcome.

      NAM is just about to open for the 2017 season and I'm in NAM Shop awaiting instructions for helping to complete the 2016 stock-take.

      As ever regular updates can be found in here!

          Happy New Year to you as well ‘Joe’, I try not to let them settle; too many things to be done at the start of this year. All NAM needs is the finances to see them all come to fruition. So I’m just keen to keep spreading the word wherever I can. So more visitors please!

          Work on the TriStar Sim over in display hangar 2 was looking good yesterday; the Monospar was also showing signs of good progress and repairs etc. on the Shackleton are also continuing.

          A fascinating trend was picked up yesterday while helping out in the shop on the stocktake, with lots of families taking out museum membership as a way of getting good value admission rates for the whole year. Long may it continue!

            Details about some possible access issues for this coming weekend (Carole Nash Classic Bike Guide Winter Classic Show that takes place on 7th & 8th January on the Showground) have been added to NAM website – more details in here.

            Plus potential NAM visitors should be aware of some temporary excavation work on access road down to the museum site / parking area (tough former airfield taxiway); and also in the museum site itself in the area by the Ashton and toilet block.

              The following message was posted on the NAM Twitter feed earlier today: “We have some copies of the 247 (China-British) Squadron Association newsletters available for disposal from #NAMarchive - any interest?”

              I thought this might be of interest on here; if anyone would like more details please send me a PM and I will pass on your details.

                        The preliminary details of a Hastings & Shackleton 40th Anniversary event on – 20 & 21 May 2017 have just been added in here on NAM website.

                            Some interesting work underway on the Saab Viggen at NAM being reported on other fora:

                            “Today the Saab Viggen in Display Hangar 2 at the museum has been the centre of attention. The Little Jet Company has been LiDAR scanning & photographing the aircraft for a large scale flying model project that they are undertaking.

                            As well as around the airframe they have been undertaking some internal photography of panels, cockpit etc. Fresh out of the camera in Hangar 2 here’s a link to a 360 degree view of the Viggen cockpit https://theta360.com/s/ifmcdFCMP7n0H5KP52WXhYPh2

                                  As previously advised the Sellers Listing for the March Aeroboot / Aerojumble has now been added to the NAM website.

                                  However I understand that it could be Sunday before any further updates are added to the list; sellers should follow the link to submit details for inclusion on the List!

                                      Details of some of the aircraft that will be open to the public at NAM during the forthcoming half-term holiday have been added to the NAM website; these include the Argosy Experience & Vulcan XM594.

                                      More details in here, I would anticipate further details will be added to the website as more aircraft openers sign up for next week.
