John Blunden will give a talk on the history of flying boats and the impact they had on long-distance travel.

    John regularly gives talks on aviation subjects to the U3A, Probus and other organizations.

    During his flying career John flew a wide range of aircraft from Spitfires to jet planes — and he flew helicopters for a while.

   John joined the RAF and learned to fly during WW2 and towards the end of the war he transferred to the Fleet Air Arm and spent much of his time flying from aircraft carriers.

   John founded the Aviation Group of the Devizes Branch of the U3A and he is still active in that group.
