The TSR2 Story
The TSR2 is one of the great "what ifs" of British aviation. If it had been commissioned would aircraft production have continued at Brooklands? How would the British aviation industry have flourished had it continued?

The TSR2 was undoubtedly a highly advanced concept and tonight aviation author and journalist Denis J Calvert will explore its development and its ultimate demise.
