Funds are urgently needed to buy F3 XR713 from Leuchars.
This is is the last uncut F3, and it is planned to dismantle and reassemble at Wattisham. The Wattisham Station Heritage have a Hardened Aircraft Shelter allocated to preserve this aircraft, alongside their Phantom and Hunter. This is very much XR713′s spiritual home, having spent much of her life at RAF Wattisham with 111 Sqn.
All donors will receive a certificate of their contribution, and those of £50 and over will receive an invitation to its official rollout.
Fantastic response at the Twilight Run, when £1700 was donated. We now have £2,800, which makes the overall Wattisham fund very healthy. Please keep donating!
Please donate as generously as you can via the link below, or send cheques payable to Wattisham Airfield Museum to,
12 Newark Rd,
Notts. NG24 2QF.
In the event of the appeal being unsuccessful, all monies will be returned.
RAF Wattisham Q-SHED - Rebuild complete but funds still needed
They protected you now you protect them!
The re-erection of the RAF Wattisham QRA Shed is 100% complete thanks to the generosity of our supporters. All our donor’s names are recorded on our Contributors Board in the hangar.
However the building still has to be fitted out with storyboards telling the Cold War and Lightning histories. Added to this we have ongoing challenge to keep both Lightnings in fully functional condition.
We have therefore decided to invite existing contributors to top up their donation at any time and at the same time invite new donors to the scheme whereby we will commission an new name, to be permanently displayed in the hangar, for a minimum of a £50 donation. You will be in good company as the likes of Wg Cdr Roland “Bee” Beamont are recorded. The specified name can be of your choice and we have a number of names “In memory of” which is a fitting way to remember a loved one or colleague.
If you have the time, then please attend one of the Open Days. If you wish to make a donation, any amount, large or small is most welcome. If you wish to pay by cheque please make payment to “LPG” enclosing a SAE and send to:
Richard Norris, 2 Spring Hill, Little Staughton, Beds, MK44 2BS (tel: 01234 378827). An SAE would be appreciated.
Want to see the “Office”? Come to an Open Day and sit in it yourself!
