Evolution –

From Schneider to Spitfire


Paul Beaver FRAeS

Wednesday 4th May following AGM

The evening's lecture will begin on completion of the AGM at approximately 19:15. 


Paul Beaver FRAeS will present a compelling history of the evolution of the Spitfire. 


Paul is an aviation historian, broadcaster and writer who specialises in the 1930s and 1940s. He is very much a hands-on historian with his own vintage Miles Messenger aeroplane.  Other aeroplane types in his log book include the Spitfire and Mustang.
