The City of Norwich Aviation Museum opened all the way back in 1977 however it was in 1985 the museum moved to its present site and an air fair was held to help raise funds to expand the museum. At this time the Anson had gone (having been damaged beyond economical repair during gales) but Vampire (XD373) had arrived. 1986 saw another air fair on 14th September that saw attendance figures break the 20,000 barriers and another arrival, T-33 (16718).
