Cranfield University celebrated its 70th anniversary only a couple of years ago, but not many people know that the actual campus site became operational ten years earlier as the Cranfield Aerodrome. It was opened on 1 June 1937 under the control of No 1 Bomber Group and served the country during WWII.

The University and Cranfield Branch of the Royal Aeronautical Society would like to acknowledge this heritage in the year of RAF’s centenary with the delivery of one of its named lectures, the Lord Kings Norton lecture. It will be given by Roger ‘Dodge’ Bailey, former RAF and Chief Test Pilot 1990-2012, Cranfield University.
