Agains The Odds Comes to York City Centre


This Sunday, 28th April, The Yorkshire Air Museum's WW2 aircrew re-enactors will explore the City of York. 

Fully dressed in authentic WW2 flight clothing, our re-enactors will be exploring the sights of the historic city. It will give visitors a unique photo opportunity as we prepare for the third annual Against The Odds Weekend at The Yorkshire Air Museum in two weeks time.

They will be appearing exactly as if they were about to climb aboard their Handley Page Halifax Bomber aircraft to embark upon operations over occupied Europe during World War Two.

Throughout the day, expect to see the amazing sight of the Yorkshire Air Museum re-enactor team as they explore the city centre, dressed in original WW2 aircrew flying clothing. 

Join us as we enjoy the historic city and remember the aircrews that flew from RAF Elvington and other aerodromes around Yorkshire during WW2. it will be a wonderful opportunity to grab a photo of our aircrew against the backdrop of the beautiful city.
