This Month  our Speaker is our member Captain Brian Surtees. Brian joined the RAF in 1957 and flew many aircraft during his 12 years of service. Brian and his family emigrated to Australia in 1969 and after 12 months as a Jackaroo in Queensland, he joined our Dept. of Civil Aviation, eventually joining the DCA Flying unit at Essendon Airport. For the next 24 years he enjoyed a career flying F27,Merlin,Rockwell Commander 1000, and F28 aircraft on navaid calibration and radar for the RAAF, the RAN, the Army, the RNZAF and occasional V.I.P work. Currently Brian is a volunteer at the DCA Museum at Essendon Airport. He has a fascinating story to tell us on the 23rd.
