The White Tornado
By

Rating
This is the inside story of the man who was known as the White Tornado in Rolls-Royce Bristol aero engines, for he outlines the work he and others carried out over twenty-one years during the early concept, development, and service stages of the Panavia Tornado engines. He went on to project manage Rolls-Royces first production single-crystal turbine blades and then worked on control systems for several years, describing these works as the story proceeds. A whistle-blower, he enjoyed Gilbert and Sullivan, hang gliding, and motorsport, and he eventually left RR to work with several charities, particularly Headway and Remap, where he describes his experience as an inventive carer of disabled people of all sorts. Many years were spent maintaining and renovating church turret Clocks, and some of this is reported here. As a humanist, he has experience of and interest in many things, and the book thus contains a variety of challenging thoughts, including the nature of biological evolution (extraterrestrials too), a proposal to reverse engineer formal methods software, a proposal for a suitable UK Constitution because nobody knows the hidden one, many other proposals for government, and thoughts about the European Union and nuclear weapons.
