As ever the Solent Branch is delighted to be able to hold our Annual General Meeting in the excellent Solent Sky Museum in Southampton.  Doors will open at 18:30 with the opportunity for attendees to spend some time enjoying free access to the museum prior to the short AGM at 19:00.
The evening's lecture will begin on completion of the AGM at approximately 19:15, and our speaker will be Wg Cdr Paul Shepherd (retd).  Paul, a retired RAF Navigator, Staff Officer and Instructor uses his personal experiences from the 1982 Falkland Islands conflict to consider the impact on aviation of operating a large-scale force, at extreme range and with minimal support.

All are welcome to attend, please check our lecture locations page for directions.
