Tornado ZG771 arrives!
Tornado GR.4 ZG771 arrives at the Ulster Aviation Society hangars to be reassembled by an RAF JARTS team
It has seemed like a very long time coming but the long talked about Tornado GR.4 — that the UAS has been so kindly gifted by the RAF — has finally arrived on 29th September 2021 after a long, two-year delay in its transport due to the on-going Covid-19 restrictions.
It was intensively re-built after its road journey over from GB by a specialist RAF JARTS team.
Best day for UAS Members to view are SATURDAYS!
More exciting news coming soon...
Currently, all visits to the hangars by the public are organised by PRIOR arrangement ONLY.
We can now allow family bubble (1 car load of 6-8 people approx.) visits again.
HOW TO BOOK A TOUR
All applications must be made at least 2 weeks prior to the visit date. Normally we would prefer to bring in a Volunteer Tour Guide to make your visit and tour more interesting.
A Volunteer – on their own time – would specifically drive to the hangars to meet you if you create a booking, so please understand that from the outset.
Anyone wishing to visit with family, should make a booking via E-MAIL HERE.
Please do NOT just arrive out of the blue during a week day. You will be turned away! You MUST book first please as the hangars are not always open.
There are 4 tour slots available daily (7 days) at 10.30am/11am and 2pm/2.30pm, and will last approximately 2 hours usually.
An E-mailed pre-booking MUST be made for all visits and we need the following:
• Date & Time Slot preferred
• Number of Family members that will be visiting with you
• your Car registration
• your Contact Mobile Number
WHAT HAPPENS THEN?
Once you have e-mailed your Booking (the only way we will accept Bookings currently), we will contact you to confirm (either via E-mail or Mobile) your Booking, or if your preferred date & time are not available; we'll then ask you to select another convenient date & time instead.
A Volunteer Tour Guide will then be arranged to coincide with your visit.
We look forward to welcoming you to our hangars and Heritage collection.
