The Yorkshire Air Museum is hosting its annual 1940s event “We’ll Meet Again” over the weekend of May 10th-12th, coinciding with the launch of a major new theme for the forthcoming year.

The museum will be filled with more than 100 Allied forces reenactors, with an emphasis on RAF Bomber Command but also US Army Air Force and Airborne Forces plus Air Transport Auxiliary, Mine Safety and more. There will be talks and demonstrations including a mock briefing before a Bomber Command operation and a talk on the Great Escape.

There will be vintage military vehicles and machinery across the site, which was a WWII RAF bomber base (RAF Elvington), as well as talks and demonstrations relating to the allied war effort. All of this takes place against the backdrop of the Museum’s original wartime buildings and, of course, the YAM’s Handley Page Halifax Mk.III bomber and Douglas Dakota Mk.IV transport aircraft, which is newly repainted with invasion stripes to mark the 80th anniversary of D-Day.
