Visit by ex Air Anglia staff (Full Story)

We were pleased to welcome a group of ex Air Anglia staff to the Museum on Sunday 21 October 2012. They had gathered in Norwich for their regular reunion.

After guided tours of our Fokker F-27 Friendship and Handley Page Herald airliners, both types that were operated by Air Anglia from Norwich Airport, and viewing of our display of exhibits, there was time for some interesting talk over a cup of tea.

Air Anglia operated from 1970 to 1980, when the Norwich based airline was merged with other operators to form Air UK. The City of Norwich Aviation Museum holds as part of its Air Anglia collection photographs, time tables and various other artifacts. We are keen to add to this archive and welcome contact from anyone who can help us expand our collection.

Regular gatherings of former Air Anglia staff are held. We have contact details for the organisers of reunions, please email

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!

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.

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.

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.
