The Museum was founded in 1967 and formally opened in its newest guise on 14 Apr 1973, although plans were being made as far back as 1964, shortly after some wreckage from a Westland Wallace has been located near RAF Cranwell. Newark Air Museum is located on the site of the ex wartime RAF Winthorpe at what is now the Winthorpe Showground. The Museum is a registered charity and most income is derived from visitors at the gates.
