2020 Cold War Call Up is cancelled 2020 Cold War Call Up is cancelled

The May event at the Newark Air Museum has been cancelled due to the ongoing pandemic and consequent Government restrictions.

Howard Heeley, Secretary and Museum Trustee at Newark Air Museum has made the following announcement regarding the event in May:
‘We have taken the sad decision to cancel the Cold War Call Up event that was due to take place on 16 & 17 May, 2020. This decision has been reached following some detailed in-house discussions; and the pessimistic outlook regarding the current coronavirus situation.
Many participants in things like the planned Meet & Greet sessions are in the age group that are now self-isolating and are likely to be doing so for the next 12 weeks.
In order to give people as much notice as possible of our intentions it is felt that this is the best time to make this decision. Our current thinking is to try and run a similar event sometime in 2021. We will be notifying people via email later today and tomorrow.
We are sorry for any inconvenience these changes may cause, especially to those people and groups who have been working on preparations on their displays for this event for many months. This includes external participants and our own museum members who have been working tirelessly on many different aircraft and projects like the Yellow Sun rebuild; but we are convinced that it is the right decision.
In the coming weeks we may use our Twitter timeline to continue with some tweets for a Virtual Cold War Call Up feed, using some materials that we were already preparing.
At the moment we are waiting to review the situation with regards to Cockpit-Fest in June and more updates will be released as and when any decision is made.’
