SUMMARY

Wind Beneath the Wings complements the previously published book ‘Wings Over Thurleigh’ (above). It traces the evolution of the Bedford wind tunnels from the earliest thoughts on supersonic flow in RAE, via a ‘German connection’, through to their construction at Bedford. A description of the five main working wind tunnels which provided a speed range from 80 mph to Mach 5 is provided, with numerous photographs and illustrations complementing its 133 pages. It also details some of the experimental facilities for flight research on Thurleigh Airfield.
