National Grid IFA2 and the Fairey Barracuda

Due to the high demand for places at our event on October 29th we are hosting this presentation again on Tuesday 10th December, 2019.

A rare World War 2 Barracuda bomber was discovered during work to prepare the route for HVAC cables between Monks Hill Beach and Chilling, as part of the construction of the IFA2 electricity interconnector between the UK and France. It is the most complete example in existence and is proving invaluable in Fleet Air Arm’s project to create a unique replica. Dave Morris, Curator of Aircraft at the Fleet Air Arm Museum, will speak about the work he is doing to preserve the salvaged aircraft.

Where: The Bridge conference room, Fareham Innovation Centre, Merlin House, 4 Meteor Way, Lee-on-the-Solent, PO13 9FU
When: Tuesday 10th December 2019
Time: 1600-1700 or 1800-1900
