Was in the Weybridge Mould Loft drawing parts for the engine beams & fairings, then onto the belly fairing aft of the main wheel bays & finally drawing the skins for the flaps. Weather was bad for the first flight of RTA & if I remember & I could not wait for it to take off. Lots of problems I think on bad airflow around engines so most of my work scrapped, but by then I was working on TSR2.
My father, Aeronautical Engineer, based at Wisley. He would have been 86 today, but was senior Test Flight Observor on the 1-11 and the plane went in to a stall and all 7 men, including my father, died.
