Famous Test Pilots

In addition to Neville Duke, Museum Honorary President, the gathering included Peter Twiss, the man who took the world airspeed record past the 1000 mph mark when, in 1956 he achieved 1132 mph flying the FD2. Duncan Simpson, who took over from Neville Duke as Hawker Chief Test Pilot and who was responsible for test flying on the Hunter, most version of the ‘jump jet’ from the Hawker 1127 through the Kestrel to the Harrier and the Hawk was also present as was David Lockspeiser, another distinguished Hawker Test Pilot.

A unique print of the Meteor Record flight was on sale for £1.00 at the Museum and purchase of this print entitled the buyer to the signatures of both Neville Duke and Peter Twiss. A bargain by any standard!
