Metheringham Airfield Visitor Centre – Closed for a Day

The Visitor Centre will be closed on Sunday 18th June 2017.

We are hosting a private function for our Volunteers on Sunday 18th June 2017 & regret therefore that RAF Metheringham will be closed on that day.

Saturday 17th June the Visitor Centre will be open as usual.

 

 

 

 

RAF Metheringham Archives.

The archives at RAF Metheringham are currently being collated and digitised, a somewhat time consuming task. Please note that unfortunately this means they must be closed for public access whilst this important work proceeds. Once complete, however, it is hoped that they will then be more accessible and anyone will be able to access the archives digitally for research purposes. We hope you will understand and be patient whilst this important work continues and let the archivists achieve their goal without interruption.

Thank you.

Andy Marson

The good news is the elusive Mr Fox has been found and is now back on duty at RAF Metheringham.!

Thank you all for your help in the search, it was much appreciated by the FOMA Trustees and we have achieved the goal! He will now proudly go on display in the Navigators position in the Carey Powell Room so can obviously never get lost again!
