Join UK Ghost Nights expert team as we uncover the ghostly secrets at the North East Land Sea and Air Museum (NELSAM)
History of NELSAM
The site of the NELSAM museum is very close to the original site of RAF Usworth which began it’s life in October 1916 as a flight station for B flight no.36 squadron. In World War Two Usworth was home to 607 Squadron. The base was a target of The Luftwaffe in August 1940. However, this was thwarted by squadrons from Catterick, Ackrington and of course, Usworth.In 1962 the base reopened as Sunderland Air Museum and has since became The North East Air Museum run by a dedicated team of volunteers
There has been much reported ghostly activity in all 3 hangers. Will you meet the resident spirits of Hangar 1 where a male is seen hiding behind an aeroplane? Is this the spirit of the pilot still protecting his plane? Hangar 1 and 2 have reported poltergeist activity and the sound of banging and laughter from a Sea Venom. Hangar 2 is also said to be haunted by wartime lovers and the male was murdered in a jealous rage by the husband.
Hanger 3 is said to be the most active with a young airman seen wandering and sightings of a little girl and the legs of a lady who were thought to have died when an engine that is on show fell on a Sunderland house killing the family.
Whether you you join us for the history or the ghosts this will be a fantastic spooky night for all. Will you last the night ‘when the lights go out’
