Newark announces Vulcan cockpit tours

The cockpit of XM594 will be open to visitors one weekend in February

To mark the 40th anniversary of Avro Vulcan XM594 landing at what is now Newark Air Museum, the Nottinghamshire attraction will be providing free cockpit access to its charge on the weekend of February 11 and 12 (donations to its upkeep are very welcome!).

This will be available to visitors who pay to come into the museum and who advise the museum in advance of their plan to participate. The museum will be open from 1000 to 1600 hours, with last admissions to the site being at 1500 hours. Admission costs are: adults £10.00, Over-60s £9.00 and Children £5.50.

The museum trustees anticipate that this will be a popular event, so to ensure that people have sufficient time inside the cockpit, they are implementing a timed ticket system. To help formulate a timed schedule, the museum requests the following information by February 1, 2023: Estimated arrival time, number of visitors and ages.

Interested parties are asked to send an email with the requested information to  admin@newarkairmuseum.org, using ‘FREE Vulcan 40th Anniversary Visit’ in the subject / topic section of your email. WITH THANKS TO HOWARD HEELEY
