Interesting talk on Operational Requirement 229 at RADARS club meeting this evening

This evening members of the Rochdale And District Amateur Radio Society (RADARS) heard an interesting talk, Operational requirement 229, by fellow club member John G7OAI.

John’s presentation covered the history of delta winged bomber aircraft in the UK, focusing on the Vulcan bomber and also covering the role of the Vulcan bomber in the Falklands Islands conflict. The talk culminated in details and a video of the final Vulcan flight and the role of the Vulcan bomber in future displays and training initiatives.

A big thank you to John G7OAI.
