Royal Aeronautical Society
On Tuesday the Royal Aeronautical Society held a ceremony at their national library at The Hub on the SEGRO estate behind us with the unveiling of a plaque to commemorate the life and achievements of Anne Burns. Anne, who would have been 95 on the day, was a distinguished aeronautical scientist and champion glider pilot. She worked for many years at the Defence Evaluation and Research Establishment and its predecessors and had an international reputation for her work. The plaque is mounted on the outside wall adjoining the entrance to the library which is open to the public and well worth a visit.
