Museum Contributes To A University Conference

During the past twelve months the University of Chichester in collaboration with the Museum have been conducting a history project on the arrival of American aviators in West Sussex in 1918. The findings of this project, led by Professor Ross Wilson, were recently presented at a conference at the University’s Bishop Otter campus.

Dr Ross Mahoney of the RAF Museum spoke to the audience on air power and the transatlantic alliance and other speakers included Dr Laurence M Burke II, a Smithsonian historian, and the Museum’s Pete Pitman who gave an excellent talk on the history of RAF Tangmere.  Finally, Professor Wilson delivered a fascinating paper written and illustrated by the Museum’s late and much lamented Dr Reginald Byron entitled ‘Tangmere and Hollywood’.
