Newark Air Museum

Over the years the Newark Air Museum has hosted five different tributes to the V-Force events at its Gateway Aviation Site in eastern Nottinghamshire close to the border with Lincolnshire.

At previous events focus has been towards the three V-Force aircraft the Valiant, Victor and Vulcan. However the museum has chosen to widen the scope of the event to cover all aspects of the Cold War era. This will allow greater emphasis to be placed on many of the other iconic Cold War era aircraft that are displayed at the museum and thereby giving visitors the chance to get up close and personal with them.

Amongst these types are the Buccaneer, Jaguar, Vulcan, Hastings, Shackleton, Canberra, Lightning, Draken; plus some aircraft that are unique aircraft to British aviation museums such as the Viggen, MiG-23 and MiG-27.

The two day event will still include a V-Force reunion, which will take the form of a meet and greet for those veterans wishing to attend.

A diverse range of visiting displays of items from the Cold War period, which given covers a 50 year time frame. It is expected that displays will located both within the display halls and around the 16 acre site.

The two day event is open to the public; normal museum admission rates apply. Appointments are preferred for group [15 plus people] visits, although not essential and a party rate booking information pack is available on application.
