Newark Air Museum Veterans Appeal

Canberra at Newark Air Museum

Efforts towards securing the visiting displays at various museum events this year are now well underway and now we are turning our attentions to trying to establish contact with veterans and former service personnel.

In particular the museum is keen to hear from any personnel who have served on the following aircraft types, which saw service with the Royal Air Force and Royal Navy; the Harrier, Sea Harrier and Canberra.

On Sunday 14th April, 2019 the museum is hosting a Harrier Day 2019, which is a special event with visiting displays and cockpits to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of the Harrier ‘Jump-Jet’ entering British military service. Whilst we have some contact with former Harrier and Sea Harrier personnel, but we are keen to hear from other people with experience on these aircraft types.

The following month, on 18th May, 2019 the museum is hosting another Canberra Saturday event, which is dedicated to the Canberra aircraft and personnel that flew them; and again it will feature visiting displays. We are now trying to re-establish contact with many former Canberra personnel who attended our previous Canberra event, but whose contact details were recorded before the new GDPR regulations came into effect.

The aim of this appeal is to allow us to gain a better understanding of the likely number of attendees, which will mean that we will be able to make the necessary arrangements more effectively.

The museum’s event organisers are keen to hear from any former personnel and ideally we would like them to send us as an email via the admin@newarkairmuseum.org email address. To further assist our preparations it would help if they could indicate whether it was the Harrier or Canberra event that they were planning to attend. The museum will acknowledge each email and if people bring along a copy of the email to the event they will get the reduced rate admission.

Both events will be open to the general public who will be looking at the visiting displays and cockpits. These visiting displays are already listed on museum website. Normal museum admission rates apply: Adults £9.00, Over 65s £7.50, Children £4.50 and Family ticket [2 adults & 3 children] £24.00
