Newark Air Museum will host Tribute To The V-Force 2018 on Saturday.

It will be the sixth time the museum has hosted a V-Force reunion for former personnel who operated Valiant, Victor and Vulcan aircraft.

The event is also open to the public. Museum trustees, volunteers and staff have put together a range of displays and activities.

On both days, several aircraft will be open for people to visit, including the Vulcan, Hastings and Varsity.

A small additional charge will be made for each aircraft visited with the proceeds going towards the museum’s aircraft restoration projects.

There will be a Vulcan XM594 systems demonstration.

V-Force-related talks will take place in the Dambusters Hut. These are free but tickets should be booked on arrival.

A flypast by a Dakota from the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight is planned.

Normal museum admission rates — adults £9, over-65s £8, children £4.50 and a family ticket (two adults and three children) £24 — apply.

Opening times are 10am to 5pm. Last admission at 4pm.
