Mud-Movers Migrate at Newark Air Museum


Two of the Cold War era ground-attack aircraft at Newark Air Museum, have migrated into new locations on the museum’s Southfield Site in eastern Nottinghamshire.

These aircraft, a former Soviet MiG-27 and British Jaguar T2A are representative airframes from both sides of the ‘Iron Curtain’.

The MiG-27 has been repositioned next to the MiG-23 airframe to create a focused mini-display area at the forthcoming Tribute to the V-Force event on 17th & 18th May, 2014. During this reunion gathering a group of Soviet era re-enactors will be camped alongside these aircraft to provide a glimpse of the enemy from the days of the V-Force.

The Jaguar T2A’s new display position is on the approach to Hangar 2, which will provide a focus to draw visitors across to the Southfield Site. This move has freed up a significant hard-standing area on the other museum site, which will accommodate larger exhibits at the forthcoming Cockpit-Fest event on 14th & 15th June, 2014.

Both moves went well and attracted a few gasps of surprise from the school children that were at the museum on an education visit.
