Duncan Sandys’ 1957 Defence White Paper, which pronounced that there would be no manned fighter projects after the Lightning, is generally thought of as having led to cancelled projects and a reduction in the size of the UK aerospace industry. The seminar will explore the validity of this view, and highlight the positive outcomes. Speakers will cover the political background to the review, the RAF’s experience of unmanned aircraft and the cancelled projects; the afternoon session looks at the missile projects which Sandys favoured and assesses the overall impact on the industry.
