Night Shoot Thank You

On behalf of the museum trustees we would like to send out very big thank you to all the photographers who participated in the Day / Night Photo Shoot yesterday and we hope that you all had an enjoyable day at

We would also like to send a special thank you to Mick Coombes and his team who put together some great scenarios around the various museum aircraft. This includes the following groups of people: the re-enactors (mainly museum members and a few external participants, who gave up their time to attend – and mostly managed to stand still when needed); the vintage car owners who joined the Vulcan photo opportunity; the museum staff and volunteers who stayed on after hours and who provided some much appreciated jacket potatoes; to those dedicated museum members who turned out early on Sunday morning to tidy up the site and make it safe for regular visitors; and once again everyone who attended the event to take their photos.

We are sorry that the team were unable to get the Bulldog out of Hangar 2 due to the high winds earlier in the day, but we hop eth alternative aircraft photo opportunities were acceptable. We also hope that everyone had a safe journey home despite reports of snow not too far away from the museum.

Hopefully an album of photos may appear in the gallery section later in the week and fingers crossed that we can do it again sometime in the not too distant future.

One final comment for now, which many NAM Night Shoot veterans will be bets placed to appreciate! As can be seen from the accompanying photo from Saturday 9th May 2019, “Captain Tango’s” American alter ego reported for duty, c/w 'special forces' guard and canine companion, in the guise of “Flt Sgt Satsuma” – thanks Dave for accepting some great banter!
