Farnborough 1945: Farewell to the Luftwaffe - Pointers to the Future

The 1945 Farnborough Exhibition and Flying Display - Free lecture given by Mike Bowyer, Aviation Writer


In late 1945 the Royal Aircraft Establishment hosted displays of German and British aircraft and equipment. It was the first opportunity that many people had to see - in detail and up close - a wide range of aircraft that until recently had been either closely guarded, such as the Spiteful and Martin Baker MB 5, or cause for alarm, such as the Dornier Do 335 and Messerschmitt Me 262. German missiles as well as German and British jet engines were also shown, giving a fascinating glimpse of what might be to come.

The young Mike Bowyer attended both and will talk about these displays and the lasting impression that they made.
