Welcome to the Aeropark
The Aeropark is both an aviation museum and a viewing area where you can study the preserved planes of yesteryear or watch the modern airliners of today taking-off and landing at a growing international passenger and cargo airport.
Within the Aeropark there is a viewing mound where the top of the viewing mound is just 170 meters north of the main east/west runway of the airport.
The Aeropark at East Midlands Airport is located in the north-west corner of the Airport site close to the village of Castle Donington. It is well signposted from the Airport's main entrance.
RAF VC10 front section arrives at the Aeropark 16/11/13
The Aeropark has aquired on long term loan the front section of RAF VC10 XV108 from GJD Services. This aircraft last flew on 7th November 2012 when it landed at Bruntingthorpe.
The section is the front 65 feet up to the wing roots and includes the in-flight refueling probe. The AVA volunteers will now be working on restoring the interior to be as it was whilst it was in service with seating etc.
Nimrod in place at the Aeropark 19/11/11
After a great deal of effort by a lot of people the Nimrod R1 XW664 is finally in place at the Aeropark.
The move from it's parking location since it's arrival at EMA started at 11:05 today when she was taken to the holding point at the end of the runway and as soon as an incoming fight landed at 11:37 she was towed on to the runway and then reversed down 250 meters of tracking in to it's newly constructed stand in the Aeropark.
Thanks must go to everyone involved in the move including Peter, Charlie, Lynne, Martin and Steve from DHL who maneuvered the Nimrod in to place.
