Brian Trubshaw 1924-2001
Brian Trubshaw spent the whole of his career in aviation, first in the RAF then in experimental test flying. With Vickers-Armstrongs he tested the Viscount, Valiant, Vanguard, VC10 and Super VC10.
Throughout his distinguished career Brian had received many honours in recognition of his services to aviation. In 1948 he was awarded the MVO for service to the Sovereign in the King’s Flight; in 1964 he received the OBE and in 1970 a Companion of that order for his work on Concorde.
Brian retired from BAe in 1986 but his passion for aviation never ceased as he set up an aviation consultancy from his home in Gloucestershire until his death in March 2001.
