RAF Museum Cosford is rounding off its year with a range of events for aircraft enthusiasts. The museum’s Conservation Centre will be open its doors to visitors this November for access to aircraft in the conservation hangar. For one week only from Monday 12 to Sunday 18 November, visitors will be able to view progress being made behind the scenes on a range of aircraft, getting the chance to view rare aircraft and to speak to technicians, apprentices and volunteers.
Tours of the museum’s Nimrod XV249 take place until Sunday 4 November, when visitors can gain an insight into the operational history of the aircraft from its time as Maritime Reconnaissance through to its conversion into a Signals Intelligence gathering aircraft, and younger visitors will enjoy the Merry Minecraft and a Happy New Robot workshop on Saturday 8 December, priced at £30. The workshop will be led by teachers from Tablet Academy and is suitable for children aged 8 to 14 years, with numbers limited to 30 participants.
