‘The History of RAF Little Rissington’ – David Brown


David Brown, who served at RAF Little Rissington for 5 years prior to its closure in 1976, will outline the history of the base, covering its distinguished wartime service and its post war role as home of the Central Flying School and the Red Arrows.   RAF Little Rissington is such an important part of our local history and the talk, full of many humorous observations, will conclude with a selection of fascinating historic film clips showing Royal visits, the formation flying teams ……..  and even Frederick the Pelican!
