Wings Over Thurleigh
 

'Wings' was first published in 2001. It  was reprinted during 2010 in its 3rd edition. Minor corrections were made to the text and many additional photographs were included. This edition has now sold out although second hand copies may occasionally be found.

In view of a continuing interest, however, the Heritage Group has supported the publication of a Fourth Edition. This is in soft back format. The content remains essentially unchanged from the Third Edition.

A new RAE Book - “Wind Beneath the Wings”

To complement the previously published Wings Over Thurleigh, Mike Dobson has written a new book 'Wind Beneath the Wings', which traces the evolution of Bedford’s tunnels from earliest thoughts on supersonic flow in RAE, via a “German connection”, through to their construction at Bedford. It also details some of the experimental facilities for flight research on Thurleigh airfield.
