Neil Carver - “Wings Over ‘Steelopolis’ Aviation and Sheffield: 1866-1914”

Wednesday November 7th 2018

This talk will examine how Sheffield reacted to the possibility, then the reality that man could fly. It will chart the development of flying clubs in the city and the role played by some well known actors on the Sheffield stage. It will also reveal that Sheffield has unexpected links, not only to some of the most famous (and sometimes eccentric) pioneers of manned flight but also to one of early aviation’s great unsolved mysteries.
