Guest: Bob Glading – WWII Fleet Air Arm Pilot
Duration: 11 minutes, 29 seconds
Topic: This recording was made on the 14th of May 2011 at the Cambridge Club, in Cambridge at the Wings Over New Zealand Aviation Forum’s annual gathering, which this year was the Forum Meet and Veterans Day.
The second guest of the day was Bob Glading who served as an RNZNVR pilot in the Royal Navy Fleet Air Arm in World War Two and postwar. He flew Corsairs in action against the Tirpitz and then versus the Japanese in the British Pacific Fleet. In this talk he gives us a more lighthearted side of flying.
Note: This recording was recorded live at an event with over 90 people in the audience, and also there is unfortunately a little noise from kitchen and bar facilities nearby. It is however a record of the event for those who could not make it on the day
