    2018 Aerojumbles & Aeroboots

    Someone else flagged up the idea / suggestion for a thread to list 2018 Aerojumbles & Aeroboots so I thought why not go for it!

    So to start off the dates for Newark Air Museum’s sale events in 2018 are:

    Spring Indoor Aeroboot/Aerojumble – Saturday 14th April (following cancellation of 03.03.18 sale)

    Summer Outdoor Aeroboot/Aerojumble (as part of Cockpit-Fest) – Saturday 23rd & Sunday 24th June

    Autumn Indoor Aeroboot/Aerojumble – Saturday 13th October

    Hooton Park Militaria and Aviation Fair, March 18th.

    Had an invitation but undecided as to whether to attend. Past events have been more Aviation Fair than Aerojumble, if you know what I mean.

    I didn't realize Popham were still holding an event. I thought it had tailed off altogether.
    Did the Crowland last year and picked up some nice items such as Typhoon throttle parts,Hurricane fuel gauge NOS but to name a few.
    The Griffon engine run was loud and good!!

    Popham now looming on Monday 7th. Weather forecast at the moment looks promising but stall costs have put me off attending.

    Such a pity, Popham was unmissable in its heyday.

    Best of luck to anyone visiting!

    I am planning on attending Popham. It is disappointing how much it's gone downhill aviation wise.

    I do miss the original Tangmere aerojumble, when everything was always a bargain.

    Went along today at the crack of dawn a great event for the classic car enthusiast but little in the way of aviation items i would say there was around three stalls with aero items but more in the way of classic car stalls,the one item that caught my eye was a Junkers 88A-4 rear cockpit gun turret that appeared to be complete with glass and gun mount it was up for £350 kind of kicked myself for not making an offer but i have just recently purchased one less the glass and mount (never mind always next time or will there) also bumped into FLY.BUY and had a nice chat and catch up along the way.
    Overall a good day i have to admit i like the buzz of going along to these events not knowing what might just turn up, nice to come back with a few quid for a change (mind you)

    Finally a glorious sunny day at Popham this year. In recent years the venue has been dogged with bank holiday wind and rain but the weather today was positively different. The layout seemed a lot more compact on this occasion, not a bad thing and saved on some leg work trying to take everything in. Personally I would say that there was noticeably a lot less 'proper' Aerojumble stalls today and by this I mean those stalls selling aircraft parts, and this probably equated to less than a handful of stalls. Some Aerojumble stalwarts were not present with their stalls this year, I believe that stalls were about £45 a pitch and this may have contributed to their non attendance. The majority of stalls were either autojumble selling car or motorcycle parts or those selling power tools, however this was as expected having been to this event on a number of occasions, the venue being predominantly geared towards motor vehicles. I really didn't note anything worth mentioning for sale other than a Ju-88 rear end gun emplacement / turret and a Miles Martinet cockpit window frame.
    I think Old Sarum is the next Aerojumble on the caldenner circuit, "It's all about the chase!"

    Plus an additional £10 if you haven't pre-booked (as I hadn't). Kerching!

    Then, if you've driven a long way and fancy stopping overnight for an early start homewards on tuesday morning, that's another £10. Kerching!

    And all for an aerojumble the promoters do sod all to promote!

    I had stalled at Popham since the good old days. Turned up at 8am as a punter, not allowed in until 10am. There were a few disgruntled people there. I asked the organiser why we could not go in early and she came out with a post shoreham explanation which I do not buy. So sent off with a flea in my ear. Went back at 0930 and they had started to allow punters in. Nice weather, but the event has lost its fun, relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Nice to see some old faces but the reputation of Popham being the friendliest and cheapest jumble has long gone. Miss old Dick and his super dream/sidecar

    Who are you calling old?

    I was really disappointed. Hardly any aerojumble stalls, all car related. I'm told this was largely due to the cost of stalls, it's certainly cheaper on the other days and events. I didn't see the bloke on the unicycle too. Having to walk in next to the cars was interesting, breating in masses of dust and smoke.

    That said, there were some very attractive light aircraft there, including two registerd in Germany that I'd never seen before and didn't have a clue as to what they were.

    Hmmm...tough choice this weekend. Royal wedding or aerojumble, which would you choose?

    Not being a noted monarchist I know where I'll be, even though it's a ****** long drive. See you all down there?

    The summer Aeroboot /Aerojumble booking information is now on the NAM website http://www.newarkairmuseum.org/Museum-Events

    They're also asking previous sellers to respond to the recent GDPR information update & people need to reply to remain in contact with the museum!

    No-one else want to offer a review of Old Sarum's Aerobilia, there was a few of "us" there?

    First off, many thanks to Hugh and the other volunteer staff, all of whom made me feel welcome, and for going the extra distance to make those of us who stayed over on Friday evening that little bit more comfortable.

    The event itself felt very reminiscent of the first one I attended (the second Aerobilia) in that it never really took off. Few, if any, early birds and a trickle of visitors with a definite "it's all over" feeling by twelve o'clock. Whether the two big events on Saturday made a difference to the attendance levels I can't say but my gut feeling is probably not.

    In terms of stalls, I'd estimate about 20, offering a mix of parts, books, ephemera and models, etc.

    There was one stall with an outstanding selection of rare pieces, but due to the poor attendance I had to take most of it back with me! The bits I did sell, however, made a bit of room in the back of the van for the delicious farmhouse cider I picked up in the next county over before finally pointing the van northwards (at about £1 per pint, btw).

    Poor old Aerobilia, despite running for six years, it seems to have failed in becoming a "must do" event. I cannot fault the organisation and I think it was an ad in one of the monthly mags that pursuaded me to give it another go. Perhaps the location is just too remote for most 'jumblers, but in suggesting that I realise that Popham isn't too far away and with the obvious decline in that event perhaps BDAC have an opportunity to capture the market in that part of the world? I guess it will all be down to the mantra "promotion, promotion, promotion".

    I had to chuckle at the comment from another veteran 'jumbler,

    "first do where the yellow vests outnumber the punters!"

    Time to start thinking about the next few events?

    The CockpitFest Aeroboot will probably be the best of this year's events, especially if we get good weather for the weekend, but what about Kenley and Crowland?

    Kenley is only two weeks away and I'm not picking up anything about it anywhere? I have an invite to attend the autojumble which is being held in the same field on the same day (and tbh at half the cost of the aerojumble).

    Crowland has a few weeks to "wake up" and I'd like to give it a go. I'm in touch but have a few questions to ask before making my mind up.

    Anyone else thinking about these latter two events?

    Oh, and by the way Howard, I sent my cheque for the Aeroboot nearly two weeks ago but haven't had the email acknowledgement yet. Should I be worried?

    Air Ministry, apologies for lack of feedback re the Cockpit-Fest Aeroboot, event overload here in Nottinghamshire and a few staff illness issues have delayed responses - sorry!

    I've just checked with the museum and everything has been received; now that the V-Force event has been concluded the passes etc. should be despatched later this week. Thanks also for your GDPR reply, you're definitely now on the list; but it looks like one or two regulars won't be!!

    As a footnote the spaces are going quite quickly.

    I enjoyed my visit to the Old Sarum aerojumble, it must be one of the friendliest museums about, the staff always making a concerted effort to greet and welcome you. It’s an ideal setting, located within a museum on an active airfield, most of the cockpits being open for inspection. I’ve noticed particularly on this occasion and on other visits it’s very much a buyers market at this event, As previously pointed out not many attendees apparent this year although there was a fair number of sellers. Two national events happening on the same day (wedding and football) may have scoured the number of people attending. Some good stalls were present and I came home with a boot load of bargains. Good to see that the museum were issuing early bird tickets as this seems to have gone out of the window in other events. Well worth the 160mile round trip for me, this is a great event and really doesn’t seem to get the support it deserves. Next one I think is Kenley aerodrome on the 3rd June.

    Have to agree with FLY.Buys summing up of the Old Sarum event, i also enjoyed the day i say day as there is so much to see in and around the aerojumble itself,met some interesting people and sellers along the way and have to agree that the event is well organised and people friendly, i personally came away with a very nice used Luftwaffe flying helmet at what i would say was a bargain price, along with some other gems at very affordable prices, roll on the next Sarum event.

    Ultimately though, events which can be described as "buyer's markets" are the ones which will fold. Of three sellers I chatted to at OS, none are considering a return visit.

    I sometimes wonder what happens to the fee I hand over for the privilege of setting up at these events. For example, how much goes on advertising and other forms of promotion - 1%, 10%, 99.9%? In other words, and in strictly business terms, do I get my money's worth? For many events I've attended over the last few years, the answer is an emphatic "no". The only events where I can honestly say I feel satisfied at the level of promotion are the three at Newark and I think we all know why that is - tireless effort by TO23!

    But his effort has been rewarded in my opinion. Newark is at the centre of the aerojumble psyche, the events are usually well attended (at least as far as we can expect these days), the stalls are usually a sell out and the same sellers return time after time. He must be doing something right!

    I really wish other organisers would study his methods rather than trotting out the lazy old excuse "but its on our website!".

    Thank you Air Ministry, it is nice to be appreciated!

    Approximately half of the pitches for the sale that runs alongside Cockpit-Fest on 23 & 24 June 2018 have now been allocated and it’s worth noting that these will be limited to 46 pitches!

    As ever booking details in here! I can also report an improved level of feedback regarding NAM’s need to comply with the new GDPR regs.

    On a slightly longer term outlook, yesterday the NAM trustees agreed re-arrange the timing for the spring 2019 Indoor event into April; based around the late Easter etc. the date selected is Saturday 13th April, 2019.

    I'll be going to Kenley, I did well in buying and selling last time.

    Wasn't aware of the disparity in stall prices but I'm not surprised
