A PILOT’S talk will be the highlight of a society’s meeting.
The Arun and Chichester (Air) Enthusiasts Society is looking forward to welcoming a leading aviation expert.
Captain Eric (Winkle) Brown, the subject of the recent BBC documentary, Britain’s Greatest Pilot, will be giving one of his final lectures, entitled Struggle to Break the Sound Barrier, in Chichester on Monday.
Capt Brown has flown more types of aircraft – 468 – than any other person, and it is probable that record will never be beaten.
Having been in the Royal Navy, he has landed aircraft more times on to aircraft carriers than any other serviceman.
He was a senior officer in the second world war and interrogated many high-ranking German officers, including Himmler.
The event at the Chichester Park Hotel will begin at 7pm, with the talk starting half an hour later. Entrance for members is £3, guests £5 and under-16s free.
