 2018 meetings

Jun 2 : Greg Baughen - From Flying Dreadnoughts to Dogfighter,

            The troubled birth of the British Fighter

This talk destroys many myths about WW1 fighter development. Part talk, part detective story, it explains how the importance of air superiority was understood long before the First World War began, explores how the influence of naval thinking delayed the development of dogfighters like the Camel and SE5a and tracks down the mysterious Fighting Experimental dreadnoughts that the RFC wanted to use instead. Based on the article of the same name in the spring 2016 edition of Air Britain's Aeromilitaria, in turn based on one of the themes in his book Blueprint for Victory.
