In addition to online talks for the RAF Club and the Company of Makers, Black has presented at the Cheltenham Literature Festival, London’s Brydges Place Club, RAeS branches and various Museums: Bentley Priory, Biggin Hill, Brooklands and the RAF’s at Cosford and Hendon.

This year’s highlights include first visits to the National Memorial to the Few, Capel-le-Ferne, and the Army Flying Museum, Middle Wallop. It was a particular pleasure to mark the opening of Vanguard’s new Staples Corner storage facility with a few words about the Hunter. Beautifully restored, the first production aircraft, WT555, is on display there, clearly visible from London’s North Circular road. If you’re passing, do take a look – but drive carefully!
