Newark 18/06/11 "Mary Alice" Emerges From The Shadows

Newark Cockpit Fest 18th June 2011

This was a first visit not only to Cockpit Fest but also the Newark Air Museum a place I had been meaning to visit for years.

A chance meeting with an exhibitor (Simon Pulford - owner of the Tornado F2 and Tornado F3 sim) at RAF Lakenheath the week before reminded me of this weekends event and finding myself at a loose end I decided to take the trip north up the A1.

I also met face to face for the first time Neil Airey and Heather Graham of Lakes Lightnings and what a wonderful experience this was full of passion and expertise at this very grass roots area of aircraft preservation.
