Event - Events mark jet bomber (Newark)

Events including a crew reunion will be held at Newark Air Museum to mark the 60th anniversary of the RAF’s first jet bomber, the Canberra.
The Canberra entered service with 101 Squadron at RAF Binbrook, Lincolnshire, in May, 1951.

To mark the anniversary, events at the air museum, which has a collection of Canberra airframes and cockpit sections, include a display of Canberra models on Saturday, May 7.

On Saturday, May 21, there will be an air and ground crew reunion of Canberra squadrons and associations.

A flypast by the Dakota from the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight will also take place that day.

At both events there will be displays about the aircraft.

Some of the cockpits will be opened for the public to sit inside.

Former Canberra personnel with proof of service receive a 50p discount on the admission price.
