A capacity crowd enjoyed a fascinating and inspiring presentation when former Red Arrow pilot Mike Ling delivered the latest of our Sunday afternoon talks in The Wing on 13 February.
With fascinating anecdotes about his experiences as the longest-serving pilot with the world-famous aerobatic team, Mike’s highly anticipated talk, entitled Up and Downs - 10 Years as a Red Arrows Pilot, was thoroughly enjoyed by those who were quick enough off the mark to get a ticket to the sold-out event.
Next up in the series of talks presented by the Battle of Britain Memorial Trust is Richard Kornicki CBE DL, who will present For Your Freedom and Ours - The Polish Air Force in the West on Sunday 27 February.
Richard is the son of the late Gen. Bryg. Franciszek Kornicki, who was the last surviving Polish Squadron commander when he died aged 100 in 2017. He flew in the defence of Poland in 1939, then in France and finally in Britain, where he commanded 317 (City of Wilno) Squadron.
As Chairman of the Polish Air Force Memorial Committee, Richard works closely with senior members of the RAF and the Polish Air Force to maintain the memory of the Polish Air Force and its achievements during the second world war.
All the talks start at 2.30pm and last for approximately one hour. Tickets are £12, although members of the Trust’s Friends of the Few organisation enjoy free or reduced admission prices. For bookings phone 01303 249292 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
