North West Region The TSR2 Saga by ProQuest


Although it happened 40 years ago, the sudden dramatic cancellation of the TSR2 bomber aircraft still resonates strongly here in the North West region where it would have been manufactured. It was therefore fortunate to obtain the services of Brian Mann to deliver a lecture on the TSR2 saga. He outlined the background of the origins of the project; the state of the Cold War, the government's proposal to replace manned fighters with AA missile defenses, and the future of the V bomber force in the face of increased Soviet defenses. Before concluding the meeting, Ian Cooper warmly thanked Brian for an excellent talk which was illustrated by many striking photographs.
