Ward Gnome for Newark Air Museum

The Newark Air Museum has just taken delivery of its latest aircraft project a Ward Gnome, which currently remains un-registered.

Built to the specification of local designer Mr M Ward of North Scarle near Newark this example of the diminutive single-seat monoplane has just been placed on long-term loan with the museum.

The project has so far been constructed to a very high standard, but it still requires a significant amount of work to see it completed. Hopefully in the coming months some of this work will be carried out by the museum volunteers and will eventually see it displayed in Hangar 1 at the museum’s Winthorpe Showground site.

When the original Ward Gnome design came out in the late 1960s it was billed as “the UK’s smallest piloted aircraft”.
