Newark Air Museum’s Cessna 310 repaint into USAF colours has been completed.
The recent good weather has enabled the restoration and repainting work on Newark Air Museum’s Cessna 310 to be completed.
The Cessna 310, G-APNJ aircraft has been repainted into a representative USAF colour scheme that the type wore operationally as a U-3 ‘Blue Canoe’ utility communications aircraft.
As previously reported, the selected colour scheme is similar to the last civilian colour scheme worn by G-APNJ and it is hoped that the change of markings will stimulate additional interest in this particular aircraft.
This aircraft will be one of several to feature in a Night Photo Shoot to be hosted by the museum in Spring 2019. For more details, go to www.newarkairmuseum.org.
