“Against the Odds” – Elvington at War Weekend

May 13 - May 14


Step backwards in time to World War Two and the time when RAF Elvington was a live bomber station. An atmospheric weekend as the Museum comes to life, with aircrew re-enactors in authentic period flying kit, aircrew mechanics hard at work on aircraft and our authentic military vehicles all moving around the Museum.

  • The RAF At War living history group will be with us to provide an accurate recreation of a wartime briefing mission as well as live demonstrations of parachute packing in our main hangar.
  • The excellent Normandy Arnhem Society will also be providing an insight of the training and equipment used by paratroopers in World War Two.
  • The Seatones four part female harmony group will be performing vintage and retro style songs live throughout the Museum over the weekend.
Halifax Friday the 13th  will be on show outside
