This coming Sunday 6th June sees our next “Thunder Day” where the engines of our live aircraft will be powered up.
Aircraft being run are the two WWI bi-planes the Royal aircraft Factory SE5a and the diminutive Estchurch Kitten which ties in with the final day of the Royal Air Force Museum’s Collections Handling Tour which is currently at the Museum.
Other aircraft are the WWII Douglas Dakota; the 1947 De Havilland Devon and then, to really bring on the thunder, it will be the mighty Nimrod MR2 XV250 and Victor V-bomber XL231 “Lusty Lindy to bring things to a grand finale.
The RAF Museum’s Collections Handling Tour allows visitors the chance to see and interact with rare items of WWI clothing and uniforms, so is a not to be missed opportunity as the Yorkshire Air Museum is one of only three locations around the country to be hosting the tour. Part of the tour activities is the Airfix ‘Make and Take’ workshop, so kids, and indeed adults, can get a WWI aircraft model to build and take away for free!
Sunday Roast will be served in our welcoming NAAFI Restaurant, all making for a great day out.
Admission: £10 Adult; £8 Concession; £5 Child and £26 Family.
