East Midlands LAA Strut - October 2018 Meeting

Post by TRAZZELL » Mon Oct 01, 2018 8:06 pm

The October meeting of the East Midlands LAA Strut will be held on Monday the 8th October at The Plough, Normanton on Soar, Loughborough, LE12 5HB, 7:30 for 8:00pm.

This month we have Nick Howarth, speaking about "Jet Engines and Things' (provisional title). Nick is a very enthusiastic hands on engineer, both at work in Future Programmes at Rolls-Royce where he is helping develop the next generation of Large Civil Engines, and at home where he has a small engineering workshop and tinkers with smaller jet engines. If you've been to one of the Rolls-Royce Heritage Trust open day events, you may have seen/heard him making a lot of noise with a model aircraft jet engine. He has also been in a Jet Provost syndicate and experimented with what a Viper Engine might be capable of in a Transit van (allegedly).

I look forward to seeing you at The Plough for what I think will be a very entertaining evening!!

Coming up for November's meeting our own Tony Irwin will give us an evening of "Aviation Annecdotes", more nearer the time.

Best regards
