112. WINKLE AND THE JETS

IPGL Tent, Sun 1st July 18:00 - 19:00 (60 mins)

Unusual in being a naval pilot, his experience in immediate post-war Germany and at the Royal Aircraft Establishment has passed into legend. His biographer Paul Beaver will separate reality from the myth and legend, shining a new light on Winkle’s exploits.
