Harrier Day – 14th April 2019
Regular Cockpit-Fest participant Richard Scarborough, who owns and displays a range of aircraft cockpits, recently, suggested that the museum looks to arrange an anniversary event to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Harrier entering British military service back in April 1969.
A date has now been set for the event, which is Sunday, 14 April, 2019; the day after our Spring Indoor Aeroboot / Aerojumble sale.
The aim of Harrier Day is to attract visiting Harrier cockpits and Harrier related displays to the museum’s site here in north eastern Nottinghamshire, where they will join the museum’s Sea Harrier ZA176 and VTOL test-bed aircraft Meteor FR9 VZ608 on display.
We anticipate that this event will include: Harrier and Sea Harrier veterans; visiting authors; model displays; aviation artists; and hopefully visiting displays of artefacts held by various individuals and collections around the UK.
A number of possible contacts have already been identified by Richard and the museum’s events organisers and these people are now being contacted to invite them along to the event. Some commitments have already been given to support the event.
