The Maurice Hale Gallery Pt 2

Maurice, an Engineer, rose through the ranks joining becoming Chief Project & Development Engineer for BUA by 1968, and was soon the P&D Manager for BCal in 1971. His work in Engineering continued and he was soon an integral part of the DC10 Liaison Group formed to develop and oversee the new fleet into service, and latterly the A320.

I am pleased to say the family have sent in some photos from Maurice's collection and I am pleased to show them here.

If anyone recognizes the people in the photos, please drop me a line anytime so I can add them in.
