Science and Technology
We held the last Science and Technology
meeting (for the time being) at our usual
haunt of the Community Centre in the
park. Due to Corona virus restrictions the
numbers were lower than usual. Our
member - Robin Acton - gave an excellent
talk on air safety. With the aid of a
PowerPoint slideshow, he explained how
safety in the air had improved or declined
since flying began at the turn of the
century, citing examples of crash landings
and aviation disasters over the years and
what lessons had been learned e.g.
cockpit and instrument layout
improvement, automated navigation and
better crew training. Sadly, he also quoted
examples of where short-sighted
profiteering had been linked to fatalities.
We were careful with what we touched (no
money changed hands) and had our usual
cup of tea or coffee before saying
goodbye for a while.
