Jindivik, An Australian Success Story
Friday 5 July – Willis Room – Whitehorse Civic Centre, Nunawading
Rob Nash will be our guest speaker at the July meeting.
Following the Second World War Woomera Rocket Range was established to help develop long range weapons. This led to a need for a full sized target aircraft with performance equal to the new breed of jet fighters. Australia took on the job of designing and developing a suitable aircraft and the result was the Jindivik drone. So successful was this aircraft that it was also used by Sweden, the UK and the USA.
This Main Monthly Meeting will be held at the City of Whitehorse – Council’s Civic Centre at 397 Whitehorse Road, Nunawading (Melway ref: 48 G9). Rooms open from 7:30 pm, meeting starts 8:00 pm.
