If you have attended previous HANG meetings please note that the timing has now changed. Doors open at 1100 for coffee and the first talk will start at 1130. Lunch will start at 1245 to be followed by the second talk at 1345. This will allow for tea and biscuits at 1500 with the chance of leaving around 1530 to avoid rush hour traffic.

The topic will be fighting of the undeclared aerial wars in peacetime. There will be two speakers.
Jack Froelich’s talk will be ‘A Caribou pilot in Vietnam’. Jack served in the USAF 1966-1973 to become instructor, check pilot and staff evaluator. He had experience on the C-7A Caribou in Vietnam and on the KC-135 Tanker.

Graham Mottram's talk will be ‘The Fleet Air Arm at war in peacetime’. Graham has recently retired from being Director of the Fleet Air Arm Museum at Yeovilton. He will consider the wars fought by the FAA both from carriers off-shore and from aircraft temporarily based ashore.
