The RAeS Boscombe Down Branch invites you to attend the following Lecture: TSR-2 – The Bomber That Barely Flew by Joe Jackson (Rolls-Royce)
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.
Joe is a 28-year-old engineer with a passion for aviation and public speaking. 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. In his spare time he flies a Cessna 172 and enjoys getting out on his road bike.
