Remembering the Whittle Jet

posted 10 Mar 2012 00:40 by Janet Atherton
Its been 70 years since the first British Jet flew from RAF Edgehill (now known as Shenington Airfield where we operate from), and at Shenington we celbrated with an Open day in February which was really well attended by local public and friends of the airifield.  We had exhibition displays from the Jet Age Museum at Staverton where the Gloster E28/39 was first built, another from the Midland Air Museum from Coventry who brought information about the jet and Sir Frank Whittle himself (the designer of the jet engine), and they also gave a talk on the importance of the Whittle jet, this was well attended by club members and many who stayed from the open day.
Below is the original poster and the write up we had in the Stratford Herald.
