Visit by Norfolk Military Vehicle Group (Full Story)

On Sunday July 1st we had a visit from the Norfolk Military Vehicle Group, who were on a road run in memory of three of their colleagues. Around 16 vehicles and 5 motorbikes arrived in convoy - quite an impressive sight!

Vehicles included 1940s staff cars, jeeps, a military police vehicle and a 1953 Korean War jeep.

More work on Harrier XW268 (Full Story)

Two members, Dan and Stuart, attempted to fit the front undercarriage leg to the Harrier today, but for various reasons this proved difficult.

They will try again soon.

Dan says then "the scene will be set to get the wheels and tyres on, outrigger legs on, and then the wings can go on." All sounds simple!

New aircraft exhibit arrives (Full Story)

Today saw the arrival of a new addition to our aircraft line-up.

Morane Saulnier 880B Rallye Club, registration number G-ASAT arrived today by road, from the Birmingham area.

Our aim, eventually, is to return it to the colours it wore during its time with the Norfolk And Norwich Aero Club way back in the 1960's

Vulcan painting presented to the museum (Full Story)

Recently the museum was presented with a limited edition print entitled 'Vulcan Scramble' by renowned aviation artist Mike Rondot.

It was presented by Carl Lamb, managing director of Almary Green, a Norwich-based company, to Karl Lake of the City of Norwich Aviation Museum.

Carl and Mike were both in the RAF, and Carl commissioned Mike to produce the original oil painting, as a reminder of his time in the RAF.

A busy day for group visits (Full Story)

Today we had two groups visiting the museum. The first was Holt's Battlefield Tours, based in Surrey.
They brought a coach with 29 visitors, as part of their Norwich weekend.
After visiting our Nimrod and Vulcan, they had a coffee in the tearoom whilst listening to a talk by one of their party.
She had been based at RAF Horsham St Faith after the war, and had several amusing incidents to relate.
They also enjoyed looking round the museum.

The second group was the Alfa Romeo owners' club.
About 15 people arrived in 8 cars and they were pleased there was just enough room in the car park for the first 6 cars to park next to each other.
Again, they visited the open aircraft and enjoyed looking round the museum.

A big thanks to all our volunteers who helped on the day.
