Work has recently been completed on the installation of a new lighting system in Newark Air Museumís Engine Display Hall, which houses more than twenty four (24) of the museumís collection of forty (40) aero engines.
The new lighting system is more energy efficient than the previous lights and is activated by a motion sensor, a combination of factors that will help the museum to also reduce its energy bill. Plus the new lighting is better for photography and complements the new interpretation boards that were installed earlier this year.
The Engine Display Hall also houses two significant TSR.2 artefacts; a major wing section and an engine bay door panel. Both of which can also be viewed more easily.
Elsewhere on site the rebuild of the Auster AOP.9 continues and the horizontal tail surfaces have now been fitted to the fuselage frames.
