A unique visit to the North Weald Airfield and Museum
Tuesday 25 September at 11:00 am
Our own Stephen Wagstaffe has organised a unique visit to the North Weald Airfield and Museum. Established in 1916 this aerodrome has seen front line action in both World Wars and the Cold War as RAF North Weald. Later it became home to the RAF’s first jet aerobatic display team, the ‘Black Arrows’, as well as 1950s military jets and it remains a working civilian airfield today. The visit will consist of a visit to the museum and the war graves in the local churchyard, a guided tour of one of the classic aircraft restoration hangers and a buffet lunch in a genuine WW2 NAAFI. You can be assured that there will be no Spam on the
