This Presentation looks at the divergence of fighter aircraft into day and night (or all-weather) sub-specialisations through the middle of the 20th Century. It then goes on to examine the re-convergence of these sub-specialisations during the 1950s and 1960s, with particular reference to the English Electric Lightning as a coming-together and further development of technology and concepts.
The lecture will be held at the Royal Force Museum, Cosford at 12.30pm on Friday 6 December 2019.
This lecture is free of charge however we do ask that you pre-book a
free ticket as seats are limited. Booking is quick and easy:
