SHHAS De Havilland Museum visit arranged for March 11th 2020 (reserve date March

Whilst at the Museum, there will be a 2 hour private tour for all SHHAS members and
guests together with Tea/Coffee (or cold drink) and light refreshments. There will
be plenty of time for us all to browse exhibits at our leisure and attendees can
either bring a packed lunch or make their own arrangements at a local hostelry

£31 (50 attendees) and £35 (min 30 attendees)

Happy Christmas to all SHHAS members. Best regards, Mike

Britain’s Biggest Warship:
HMS Queen Elizabeth
Sunday 10th November
BBC Two Series 2 3/3
After three months at sea, the test pilots from the Royal Navy and RAF have successfully
landed the F35 jets on the flight deck of HMS Queen Elizabeth for the first time,
and even tested launching and landing in hurricane conditions. But with just a few
weeks to go before the warship arrives in New York in spectacular style, they are
about to try a method of landing never attempted before, which carries great risks
but could revolutionise carrier operations globally. Last in the series.
