This year’s Open Day took place on September 12th when thirty plus visitors made the journey to Cosford. The purpose of the Open Day is to provide access to BMPG’s LCP and radar Type 86 and to view the progress being made. It is also an opportunity for old colleagues from the operational days of Bloodhound to meet up and as the expression goes, ‘open the hangar doors’ to catch up on times gone by. The Open Day was also an opportunity to view films and documentation now in the possession of the BMPG. A display of items was also available to demonstrate how electronic technology evolved during the operational life of Bloodhound, the display also included electronic packs from the missile. Feedback on the Open Day from visitors was very positive.
