Watch in the Museum or Online


7pm Thursday 20th July

To any history enthusiast, ‘Winkle’ Brown needs no introduction: national treasure, legendary test pilot, 487 types flown, 2407 carrier landings, interviewed Göring and so on.  Paul Beaver knew him well and has painstakingly reconstructed his life story to find some amazing facts and a few unexplained myths. ‘Winkle’ spoke at the Army Flying Museum a few years before his death in 2016 and many will remember the magic.

Join Paul Beaver at 7pm on Thursday 20th July when he'll take take us back to the age of air combat, the first jets and breaking the sound barrier. Paul will be signing copies of his latest book.
