Interceptor – The Development of fighter Aircraft during World War 2 – A Talk by Tim Barney

For many of us the Battle of Britain is the key narrative of the Second World War, and the sleek, elegant Spitfire is its supreme icon. If you’re interested in classic fighter planes like this, and would like to know more about their design and development, then this is the talk for you. Between 1939 and 1945, the performance of some aircraft literally doubled. Blending technical discussion with many real-life examples, this talk describes how and why these dramatic advances were achieved – and also explains why compromise turned out to be even more important than innovation.
