To mark this year’s Comic Relief charity fundraising campaign, staff at Nottinghamshire’s Newark Air Museum painted a red nose on Avro Ashton WB491. The aircraft is pictured sporting the temporary marking on March 13. Volunteers have recently been rebuilding and refitting the exhibit’s cockpit area (see News, February issue). HOWARD HEELEY


The Arlanda Aircraft Collection based to the north of Stockholm, Sweden, has opened an exhibition dedicated to the crash of McDonnell Douglas MD-80 Dana Viking in December 1991. All 129 people aboard the SAS-operated airliner survived. The display includes the cockpit section of the aircraft and several smaller items. LENNART BERNS
