Our insurance renewals have also been processed. There have been a couple of minor changes to existing policies as well as new coverage that will ensure we are covered for any loss of income should we suffer a major catastrophe at the Museum. One matter that caused some consternation during the renewal process was the values attributed to our engines and aircraft in the Museum. If anyone can shed any light as to how these values were derived then please let the Committee know. Anecdotal information suggests that it was derived from some sort of scrap value assessment (with the exception of the F-111 and B-52); both of these values are set by the lending authorities. SICK LIST Sadly we have experienced a spate of illnesses of late. Julie Mastin is recovering slowly from recent surgery and Alan Cairncross, Brian Thomson and caretaker Terry Cook are also on the sick list. On behalf of members and the Committee we extend our thoughts and best wishes. MUSEUM MOMENTS INTERPRETIVE SIGNAGE UPGRADE All of the interpretive signage for the aircraft in the AAHC have now been delivered to the Aviation Heritage Centre along with most of the display stands. The Workshop Crew have been busy affixing them to their pedestals and locating them next to the appropriate display. May I say they look absolutely outstanding and we were delighted to notice how many visitors were stopping to read and photograph the signs. Some very positive feedback was received from visitors as we were installing them. We are also sourcing some A2 and A3 frames to use on text displays around the walls of the Centre. Awaiting assembly Before and after a noticeable improvement ! The new Betty display courtesy of the AAHC Staff One of our visitors admiring the new signs Page 3 of 5
