First of our new talks announced

Our autumn talks are back – and we’re kicking off this year’s Sunday afternoon events with two fantastic speakers.

The first of this year’s talks is by former Vulcan pilot Flt Lt Paddy Langdown, who flew these awesome machines from 1963 to 1976.

Paddy’s talk, entitled The Last Flying Vulcan Bomber, takes place on 21 October at 2.30pm and will focus on his experiences at the controls of Vulcan XH558.

The following week, on Sunday 28 October, Alex Ferris will give a talk entitled Air Crashes at Smarden since 1929, again at 2.30pm.

Lying as it does underneath the flightpath to London, Kent has witnessed its fair share of air crashes, and the tiny village of Smarden is no exception.

This talk will tell the story of four aircraft and their pilots, from an early crash in 1929, a second one a few years later in which a pilot was involved in two crashes in the same week, and a Spitfire and Messerschmitt crash in WW2.
