Flight Test: The Avro Arrow and a Career in Aeronautical Engineering

I. Wilkinson and A. Thompson

Ralph Waechter worked with two individuals at Avro who were identified in his reports as I. Wilkinson and A. Thompson. These individuals were part of the engineering staff responsible for the Arrow’s instrument calibration and performance analysis. In order to more fully credit these individuals for their contributions to the Arrow project, anyone knowing their full names, preferably with documentation confirming their employment at Avro, is asked to contact the author. Note that I. Wilkinson is not to be confused with author L. (Les) Wilkinson of "The Arrowheads" group.
