Jet Age Museum hosts Eric ‘Winkle’ Brown display


The Jet Age Museum in Gloucestershire has opened a temporary display dedicated to British aviation legend Capt Eric ‘Winkle’ Brown.
It provides an insight into the early life and military career of a remarkable Fleet Air Arm and test pilot. Captain Eric Brown was the most decorated pilot in the history of the Royal Navy, and, after a remarkable career as a test pilot, flew 487 types of aircraft, more than anyone else in history. Among his many exploits was the first jet aircraft landing on an aircraft carrier. He was the Jet Age Museum’s Patron and on May 9, 2014 he officially opened the attraction.
Eric Brown story will be displayed from January until March 2020.
