Following a successful series of lectures across a wide range of topics at the Army Flying Museum in Middle Wallop, Hampshire, Landmarc Support Services (Landmarc) have committed their continued support for the Museum by sponsoring the 2023-2024 lecture series.
The sponsorship from Landmarc lends its support to the informative and educational presentations spanning the history of British military aviation. The lectures, watched by audiences around the country, have proved to be a popular part of the Museum’s event programme. Technology and expertise supplied by Landmarc has enabled the Museum to stream the lectures online with live Q&A sessions at the end of each presentation.
Recent lectures have seen best-selling author Liz McConaghy present to one of the biggest audiences of the year with her lecture ‘Chinook Crew Chick’ and Battlefield Guides Mike Peters and Julian Whippy also take to the stage.
In partnership with the Defence Infrastructure Organisation (DIO), Landmarc provides the support services that enable Armed Forces from around the world to prepare for frontline military operations across the UK Defence Training Estate, which includes the neighbouring Salisbury Plain Training Area.
Managing Director Mark Neill said, “The Army Flying Museum is an important part of our local community, and we are proud to be able to continue our partnership for another year. The Online Lectures are innovative, educational and invaluable to bringing our military history to new global audiences. We encourage anyone who has an interest in the military to take the opportunity to watch the lectures, or even to visit this wonderful museum. You won’t be disappointed.”
Lucy Johnson, Chief Executive of the Army Flying Museum said “When we first started the lecture series during the pandemic, we were astonished to see the number of people tuning in and particularly enjoying the live Q&A function. It has been great to see people returning to events in the Museum over the last year as well as viewing online to learn more about the history of military aviation and we are extremely grateful to Landmarc for continuing their support for the Museum.”
The next lecture on 20 July sees Paul Beaver, Trustee of the Army Flying Museum, present his latest book Winkle which tells the story of Battle of Britain hero Winkle Brown. Brown's extraordinary flying career saw him fight in the Battle of Britain, narrowly escape death on a torpedoed aircraft carrier, achieve a litany of new records and firsts as a test pilot, and fly more kinds of aircraft than any other pilot in history.
