As with previous years I thought I’d try and populate a new Newark Air Museum (NAM) Briefing thread to use for short updates and news snippets from eastern Nottinghamshire.

As the year progresses I will provide updated details of NAM activities in here! 

More regular NAM news updates can also be found in here!

Could a Moderator please lock the 2019 Newark Air Museum Briefingthread?

Something that's been posted elsewhere but that I thought might be of interest to some on here!

"Earlier in the week we became aware of 2 fascinating Pathe News clips featuring Taylor Monoplane G-APRT that is displayed in Hangar 1. They really highlight the ‘homebuilt’ aircraft description!

Different times; enjoy “Plane in a Parlour”!!
