Alcock and Brown centenary talk at Brooklands Museum

The 14th June 2019 was 100th anniversary of the first non-stop crossing of the Atlantic ocean in an aeroplane. I had the honour of speaking to a full house of members of Brooklands Museum Trust in the historic Napier Room.

Here is my “Aviator’s view” of this magnificent achievement.

Thanks to the lovely people of the Cotswold Gliding Club I had the opportunity to get back into air one more time.  Amazing experience and I even got to do a little steering!
