Aeronautical & Space

East Yorkshire and Aviation have strong historical links dating back to the establishment of Blackburn Aviation (later Hawker Sidley & British Aerospace) at Brough in 1916 and its later flight test centre at Holme on Spalding Moor, the numerous RAF Bomber Bases in the area during WW2 and today with the Elvington Air Museum.  It is therefore hoped that there will be keen interest within the Pocklington and District u3a for a Aeronautical & Space Group which John Senior will lead. John has over 40 years career experience in both military and civil aircraft design after which he still maintains a very keen interest in all aspects aviation. It is proposed that the group will meet on a bi-monthly basis to view presentations and films on selected subject matter and to discuss and exchange information in a friendly and relaxed environment. Field trips to museums such as Elvington are also proposed. Any member of the group can request subject matter to be researched and presented at the next meeting and of course can volunteer to present it themselves should they wish.
