Event - V bomber crew sought for reunion (Newark)

Newark Air Museum is appealing for former V bomber personnel to get in touch ahead of a reunion.
The V bomber force was established in the 1950s as part of the UK’s Cold War nuclear deterrent.

The museum is holding a reunion of former personnel in April. It will mark 60 years since the formation of the force, 50 years since the Cuban Missile Crisis, and 30 years since the Falklands War.

It previously held reunions in 2004 and 2010.

More than 100 people have already registered their interest, but the museum is keen for more to get in touch.

It is particularly interested in contacting people who served at RAF V bomber bases at Coningsby, Cottesmore, Finningley, Gaydon, Honington, Marham, Scampton, Waddington, Wittering and Wyton.

The museum includes the Vulcan XM594, which was part of the force, among its exhibits.

Anyone interested can find an inquiry form at www.vforce

The event, on April 28 and 29, is also open to the public.
