Rolling Thunder Day

August 27


Rolling Thunder Days are back!

On Sunday 27th August, the live Cold War Jet aircraft resident at the Museum will once again be active and thundering down the vast two mile runway at Elvington airfield.

Join us for a much anticipated day of live aircraft high speed runs along the huge Elvington runway as our jet aircraft enjoy some exercise on this famous runway.

Blackburn Boccaneer – our freshly repainted 1964 Buccaneer will be showing off her beautiful new Royal Navy paint scheme.

Victor XL231 – One of the heroes of the Museum, Lusty Lindy will be live on the runway as we enjoy a chance to see her moving in action once again.

Nimrod XV250 – The Maid of Moray will be live on the runway as we recall the many aircrew who served on board these remarkable jets and also, of course, those who were sadly lost in service. Seven years after her arrival at Elvington, she’s still ready to go.

Please note: Thunder Days admission are £12 Adult, £10 Concession, £5 Child & £30 Family (2 Adults & 3 Children). Tickets may be purchased on the day or in advance through our online store here.
