An Officer, Not A Gentleman

7pm Tuesday 16th January

Ever wondered what it must be like to fly a fast jet in a combat situation? Possibly not! Mandy Hickson fought hard to achieve her ambition to be a Royal Air Force pilot. She was the first woman to fly a Tornado GR4 on the front line, completing three tours of duty and 45 combat missions over Iraq. She has recently launched her bestselling book, ‘An Officer, Not A Gentleman’.

Join Mandy in the Museum at 7pm on Tuesday 16th January as she shares the story that took her to the front line. There will be the opportunity to buy a glass of wine or soft drink beforehand and Mandy will be signing copies of her book.

If you are unable to be there on the night, buy an online pass to watch live and join in the Q&A, or watch on catch up afterwards. Simply select a session - this is a requirement of our online ticketing system, but it doesn't matter which session you select because you will be able to watch the lecture at any time from 7pm on Tuesday 16th January. You will be sent a link to the page where you'll be able to view the lecture.

The content of lectures are based on the research and views of the guest speakers.

The Museum is an independent charity and all proceeds from this event go towards supporting the work we do in preserving the history of British Army aviation.
