Hi NAM Updater

I can see what your saying ref footfall with those figures it should have been a lot busier for the Aeroboot stalls but it really was quite slow where we were.

As I say... it was still a very enjoyable day and I hope very much NAM can get another one in before the end of the season.

I agree with you totally that the hangar location is probably not a covid secure option at this time which is a shame as it is always nice to be pitched in between the aircraft exhibits as you feel part of the museum and it generates a great atmosphere.

Hopefully... Next year will see a return to hangar 2🤞

Stay safe.

Looking forward to the next update on the next Aeroboot.

Some market research regarding Aeroboot / Aerojumble events at the museum - would you attend an Outdoor Sale in late October?

Attend as seller
Attend as a buyer
Only attend an indoor event
Would not attend

i would as a buyer. i think devoted aviation fans would turn up regardless of time of year, weather etc. lets face it, most of us spend hours at airbase fences or up mountains in all conditions for our hobby.

besides, my last trip to nam aeroboot ( prior to this one ), was 6 years ago and it was cold and pi**ing it down

just my opinion

Thanks for the feedback Daz - all input is being fed back into the impending debate; sadly it's all looking a bit marginal at present.

I hope that you're OK with the fuel and can make it along for a visit.

Not sure how it might affect things; bookings still coming in today & I expect that there will be a further update later!

There’s been another amendment to the 1940s Weekend website information – some cancellations (fuel situation & illness); plus some new additions!

I would attend the aeroboot indoors or out. I've visited the last two and really enjoyed them both.
