“Cherchez Les Lapins Blancs”
To celebrate Easter and in memory of RAF Elvington Station Mascot ‘Nostradamus’, we are running an Easter trail with a French twist.

This Easter when you visit, follow the white rabbit trail around the museum, answer the questions as you explore, then collect your own yummy white chocolate rabbit!

To celebrate the Centenary of the creation of the Royal Air Force on 1st April 1918, we have a special trail of questions for everyone to answer.

We have 250 white chocolate rabbits this Easter Sunday. Collect your trail questions from the Museum stewards office by the main entrance, £0.50 per trail, suitable for all children, prizes available to the first 250 completed trails.

Nostradamus was a white rabbit who lived at the Station when the French Squadrons were based here during WWII. He was so popular with the French aircrews that he became their official mascot and featured on their Squadron markings carrying a knapsack, which you can still see displayed proudly on our Halifax bomber in the main Hangar. 346 French Squadron was formed here during World War Two.
