MUSEUM SPEAKER PROVIDES THE FIRST AIR ACES TALK

February, 2013

The Arun and Chichester Air Enthusiasts’ Society (Air Aces) is a recently formed society whose aim is to provide monthly talks on aviation subjects. For their first talk, David Batcock of the Air Aces inauguration team turned to the Museum’s Pete Pitman to give the talk at a hotel in Chichester. David had heard Pete give his excellent talk on Tangmere and the World Airspeed Record a few years ago and was keen for him to set the standard for the following talks. Over seventy enthusiasts turned out on a wet and windy January evening and were not disappointed with Pete’s presentation of the history of the absolute world airspeed record attempts and Tangmere’s part in particular.
