ATC Plane Build Competition
Prompted by a tweet from 2195 Squadron Long Eaton Royal Air Force Cadets the Newark Air Museum has decided to re-work our build a model plane competition from the Radio Nottingham Big Day In event last weekend.
The museum is now going to try to reach out to Air Training Corps (ATC) Squadrons and cadets across the country to ask them to build their favourite museum aircraft or helicopter out of from recycled materials such as paper, cardboard, loo rolls, sticky back plastic etc.
Once it's completed entrants will need to take a picture of the finished model and get their ATC Squadron to tweet it on the museum's Twitter timeline @NewarkAirMus using the hash tag #NAMplaneBuildATC
The competition will close at 5pm on Saturday 16th May 2020; when the museum will then pick its favourite models.
As an incentive the museum is providing prizes of two FREE museum visits (for when it re-opens) for the ATC Squadrons that produces the best design, for up to 20 cadets, officers and civilian instructors per Squadron.
As an added incentive the museum has also add a prize of two £30 vouchers to spend in the Museum Shop for the Cadets that produce the winning design.
The museum would also like to say thank you to 2195 Sqn Long Eaton Royal Air Force Air Cadets for allowing them to use their photo!
