Speakers: Dr Richard Bomphrey, University of Oxford

Mankind has been airborne for over one hundred years and advances in aeronautics during that time have been immense. Yet, despite our wealth of knowledge, we are still unable to recreate the performance exhibited by flying animals. This talk will highlight some of the peculiarities found in insect flight to see if we can learn anything that could be incorporated into air vehicles of the future.
