Park Street & Frogmore Society Talk Aviation in Hertfordshire
February 18 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm£2
Aviation in Hertfordshire by Chris Scivyer.
This talk covers some 110 years of aviation activity across the county. It looks at the many airfields and aircraft factories across Hertfordshire and explains how and why they were developed, and in many cases why they are no longer active today. It covers First and Second World War fighter and bomber bases including Bovingdon, Nuthampstead and Hunsden. We will look at the airfields that were used for testing experimental and production aircraft by manufacturers such as De Havilland at Hatfield and Handley Page at Radlett. Other smaller airfields such as Elstree Aerodrome, Panshanger, and Plaistow’s Farm that are used for private flying and pilot training.
