Dr J D Cockcroft listening for atomic disintegration

Dr John D Cockcroft listening for sounds indicating atomic disintegration brought about by the bombardment with high-velocity protons of the lithium nucleus, which appears to break up into two helium nuclei. Physicists Cockcroft and E T S Walton developed the Cockcroft-Walton accelerator to artificially accelerate atomic particles to high energies, to enable them to observe the results of splitting the atom.

Avro Lincon B.2 G-APRJ Featured Print

Avro Lincon B.2 G-APRJ

Avro 694 Lincoln B.2 G-APRJ (ex RF342 / G-29-1 / G-36-3), of Napier Icing Research Limited.This Lincoln first flew on 5 June 1945 as RF342 but saw no RAF service, going straight to long-term storage, then to the Ministry of Supply in Nov 1948 and on to D Napier & Sons of Luton, for icing research work. Much of this involved mounting a wing section vertically on the top of the rear fuselage, forward of which was a rig which sprayed water on the aerofoil at altitude, so that the development of ice (and effect of countermeasures) might be studied. At the end of 1958 RF342 was sold to Napier and registered G-APRJ. However, much of its ongoing research flying was undertaken wearing the companys Class B marks G-29-1. In Nov 1962 it passed to the College of Aeronautics at Cranfield, which also conducted aerofoil trials under the Colleges Class B marks G-36-3, with sections were mounted vertically on the rear fuselage, just as with the Napier icing work. The Lincoln resumed G-APRJ in 1964 during a short stint with the Empire Test Pilots School. It was acquired (for lb1,500) by the British Historic Aircraft Museum at Southend in 1967 and flown into Southend for handover on 9 May, as G-APRJ. Date: circa 1960
