Among the presentation was a mention of Major Tim Peake who became the first Army Air Corps pilot to live on the European Space Station. The Museum has on display a polo shirt worn by Major Tim actually on the space station donated by the man himself.

Dorset ACF's RSMI Matthews who himself served in the Army Air Corps was also present this evening and gave a short talk to the cadets about careers in the Army Air Corps and the wide range of trades available. He was impressed with the cadet's discipline and attitude during the evening's lecture.

The Army Museum of Flying is holding a series of lockdown lectures and the next one will be on the 22nd February 2021 at 19:00hrs and the title is "V for Valour". All are welcome and it is free of charge but you will need to register to watch it.
