Specoal event at Newark Air Museum.

THERE is the chance to step back into the 1940s at Newark Air Museum this weekend.

The event celebrates various aspects of the decade at the museum, which is on part of the former second world war RAF Winthorpe airfield.

In the Dig For Victory Garden, near the Anderson Shelter, produce is being readied for harvest and may be used to feed volunteers looking after the new second world war ROC (Royal Observer Corps) area.

There will be a 1940s feel to the site with indoor and outdoor displays.

They include vintage vehicles — cars and military — local history groups, and themed wartime trade stalls.

There will be performances by Fiona Harrison — A Voice in a Million; and flypasts by aircraft from the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight on both days.

Visitors are encouraged to dress in period costume. Anyone planning to dress up who books in advance will have free admission, or those on the day will have a discounted entry.
