Greg Baughen - Duncan Sandys - Demon or Fall Guy?

Author and (sometimes controversial!) speaker Greg Baughen returns with a talk that describes how the Air Ministry was heading towards pilotless aircraft long before the 1957 Duncan Sandys White Paper. It looks at the various unmanned systems developed between 1916 and 1957. It  describes how in the 1950s there was general agreement between government and Air Staff about the general direction the RAF was going and explains that the 1957 defence review was not about replacing piloted aircraft with missiles
