Never Too Old to Fly Again

Group Captain Eric Barwell, now 93 years old and a Battle of Britain pilot whose WW2 flying career included Hurricanes, Defiants, Blenheims, Beaufighters and Mosquitos attended with his nephew John Barwell – himself an ex Meteor pilot and Boscombe Down test pilot. Eric, now with failing eyesight, gamely flew the Museum’s flight simulator and confessed that it was over 60 years since he had last flown as Pilot in Charge, that last flight being a Mosquito. He showed such promise that he was awarded a ‘Future Pilot’ badge and our picture shows him sporting it!
