Royal Aeronautical Society Lecture - 13th February 2019
Our Association Archivist, Phil Styles, is giving a lecture to Royal Aeronautical Society in Chester on Wednesday 13th February 2019 entitled ‘Coastal Command – The Transformational Years 1936 – 1971’ which will cover the period from the creation of Coastal Command to the introduction of the Nimrod. It will plot the incredible advances made in all areas of RAF maritime operational aircraft in that time esp. the electronic aids which, starting effectively from scratch at the beginning of WW2 snowballed into, not just hardware, but the enormous equipping and training of the thousands of specialist personnel, that eventually became almost more demanding that the aircraft themselves!
