9th February 2021 – 17:30 GMT

TSR-2 – The Bomber That Barely Flew

This lecture covers the chequered story of a Cold War aircraft that had a strong connection to Boscombe Down – the BAC TSR-2. Its story is one of pride that, despite political infamy and unkept promises, demonstrated unmatched technical evolution and resolve.

He studied Engineering at Loughborough University and went on to work at Rolls-Royce for five years, developing jet engine manufacturing and assembly techniques across the UK and Virginia, USA.
