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.
