Bev Snook’s files of papers have recently been presented to the RAeC by Mrs Pauline Snook and family.

These files provide comprehensive information about air records, racing and rally events – mainly during the 1970s and 1980s. The papers are now incorporated into the Trust’s archive collection at the RAF Museum, Hendon, where they can be viewed for research purposes by prior appointment.
