Club Meeting: 13th May 2019
Please remember that as the first Monday of the month is a Bank Holiday the meeting will be held on the following Monday 13th May at the Ipswich Sports Club, Henley Road at 8pm.
I am very pleased to announce that we will be welcoming along Air Commodore Mike Bettell OBE (Rtd). Mike will presenting us with his talk entitled "Phlying the Phantom - A Day in the Life of a Phantom Pilot in the Cold War". Mike starts by setting the cold war scene then goes into the air threat and what they had to combat it; then a day in the life of a Phantom fighter pilot training for war.
Mike doesn't charge for his time but voluntary contributions from you towards a charity that he supports are most welcome.
Mike says "In doing these talks I have managed to raise quite a lot of money for a charity which I support. It's run by the Coachmakers' Guild who have helped a number of students to study aeronautical engineering at Kingston University who otherwise would not be able to attend. It's my small way of helping British aeronautics where once we led the world"
