Robert’s aviation interest started when he gained a Flying Scholarship. After taking a Doctorate in Nuclear Physics in 1977, Robert moved into IT. From 2000, Robert led the restoration of Vulcan XH558, which succeeded seven years later with her first test flight; he then kept XH558 flying for eight years, to the acclaim of millions. Robert is now aiming to inspire youngsters into aviation, engineering and   technology by showcasing working examples of aircraft.

A railway enthusiast from childhood, Peter and a small group of school-friends rescued LNER dock shunter 985 from scrapping at a Nottinghamshire colliery as early as 1964.  It has since been restored and transferred to a Trust and, aged 95, runs frequently in Mid-Suffolk. After retirement (and a long TA career) Peter was heavily involved in canal restoration in the East Midlands, before re-locating to the south coast.  He has been a member of Council since 2003 and, in 2007, 'invented' the 'Red Wheel' programme, that has since become such a key element in the Trust's persona.
