NEWSLETTER (Issue No 223)

November 2018

Email: as supplied

Welcome to the November 2018 newsletter. In this issue we have a review of the October meeting.

Please note that the start time of the meetings is 7.30pm.

As per usual, I reiterate my plea for articles to put in the newsletter, so if you have any then let me know. It can be anything aviation related. I am sure you have something to tell the club, for example your work experience, or a book review or maybe an Airshow review.

As this is the last newsletter before Christmas, can I wish everyone and their families a very happy Christmas and a fantastic New Year.


Next meeting will be held in the Lightning Club, Warton, on November 29th 2018 commencing at 7:30pm

Dave Ward returns to tell us about “The Early Years of the MRCA/Tornado Programme”.


 Due to the unavailability of the planned speaker, member Lloyd Martin kindly stepped in and gave us a presentation on TSR2.

 Lloyd gave us his thoughts on TSR2, accompanied by a series of slides which included images of the aircraft in its likely service colours.

 This was followed by member Mark Wright who showed us some of his fantastic aircraft images.


 Carol is preparing the programme of talks for next year. Progress so far is listed below. She asks if anyone has any ideas for a talk, or have any contacts who might be able to do a talk. If you do please let me know and I will pass on to Carol. Thanks.
