Weather permitting, the BBMF’s Avro Lancaster PA474 has been confirmed to fly at this year’s Croft Nostalgia Festival on August 5 and 6 in North Yorkshire.
Now in its ninth year, Oostwold Airshow (in the Netherlands) on June 4 and 5 is set to host a superb line-up of historic aircraft - among other attractions.
At IWM Duxford throughout the Easter holidays (Saturday 1 to Monday 17 April) visitors can explore the Avro Lancaster, one of the museum’s most iconic large aircraft. The Lancaster Experience offers visitors the rare opportunity to peer inside the rear section of this legendary bomber and hear stories about the men who flew and fought in these famous aircraft.
Duxford's first airshow of 2017, the Duxford Air Festival on May 27 and 28, is taking shape. See below for details. Remember that entry to Duxford's air shows are by advance ticket purchase only.
Further to other recent stories about the changes at RAF Museum Hendon as part of the RAF Centenary Programme, the museum has just released this picture of Hawker Hurricane Mk.I P2617 being moved. The fighter is staying at Hendon but is being relocated within the museum. As previously reported, the Junkers Ju 88, Messerschmitt Bf 109G-2, Gloster Gladiator and Boulton Paul Defiant have been delivered to Cosford. The museum's Hurricane is a Battle of France veteran that served with 607 Squadron.
