Cockpit-Fest 24 at Newark Air Museum

Cockpit-Fest 24 at Newark Air Museum

Arrangements for the 2024 Cockpit-Fest are well advanced at Newark Air Museum's site in eastern Nottinghamshire; close to the border with Lincolnshire. The museum is a registered charity located on part of the former site of RAF Winthorpe; this year's Cockpit-Fest is once again taking place in its traditional June time-slot; on Saturday 22nd & Sunday 23rd June, 202.

This will be the twenty forth (24th) time that like-minded enthusiasts have displayed their aircraft cockpit sections at the museum. Cockpit-Fest has become a fixture on the aviation calendar and each year attracts many visiting cockpits and associated displays. Cockpit-Fest allows the owners the chance to display their prized exhibits to their fellow enthusiasts and the general public.

As ever this event will see a diverse range of aviation subjects represented. Twenty-seven (27) cockpits and airframes are due to attend, incorporating military jet cockpits, helicopters and civilian types.

In addition, eighteen (18) visiting aviation related exhibits will be displayed inside; with seven (7) special displays outside in different parts of our 16-acre site. Alongside Cockpit-Fest an Aeroboot / Aerojumble aviation and avionics sale is being held. Here enthusiasts and the public can search out those missing aviation artefacts, books and models from the thirty-seven (37) sellers who have booked spaces.

The event is supported by a range of organisations and individuals; with the visitors being encouraged to have a say in deciding, which is the best cockpit by voting on their favourite display and from these results, prizes are awarded.

Cockpit-Fest also attracts other visiting displays like local history groups; re-enactors; and even more aviation related displays such as clothing and historical artefacts.

Full details about the events and a full list of visiting cockpits and displays can be found on the Museum Events page of the museum website at
