Newark repaints Cessna, acquires Puma tail boom


The Newark Air Museum (NAM) is repainting its Cessna 310, G-APNJ, into a representative US Air Force colour scheme that the type wore operationally as a U-3 ‘Blue Canoe’ utility communications aircraft. The selected livery is similar to the last civilian scheme worn by G-APNJ and it is hoped that the change of markings will stimulate additional interest in this aircraft.

The recently acquired Puma HC1 project, XW208, has meanwhile received a significant boost in the form of the acquisition of a tail boom. This was made possible thanks to the generous assistance from the staff and volunteers at the East Midlands Aeropark; the project is also befitting from significant input and advice from the wider RAF and UK helicopter community.
