Farnborough Air Sciences Museum


Victor Bingham Collection


























In the early days of FAST Victor Bingham donated his records to the Library for safekeeping. Victor had served with the RAF during World War Two, and later worked in the engineering sphere, ultimately for BEA and later British Airways.

He was a prolific author of books on aeroplanes and campaigns. His books were always deeply and accurately researched and FAST holds some 100 major files and volumes of his research details and correspondence, his photo albums and many technical manuals.
