After delivering a well-received talk at the Institute in 2018, we are pleased to welcome back Captain Lorimer Burn. Lorimer’s career began in 1967 and included time spent flying for the Royal Navy, British Airways and
BMI. He retired in 2006 and after 40-plus years of flying with only one crash, he was pleased to do so!

In this talk, Lorimer will look in some detail at the disastrous crash of Air France 447 into the Atlantic in June 2009. He will then examine the skilful avoidance of disaster, with the landing of US Airways 1549 on the Hudson River in January 2009.

Please note: it is not possible to book this talk via our website. If you would like to book a place, please contact the Institute on 01483 562142.
