The work of Sir Barnes Wallis covers the key aviation developments of the 20th century from airships through novel aircraft structures to swing-wing supersonic aircraft, although he is best-remembered as the designer of the "bouncing bomb" used to attack dams during World War II. I am able to speak about any aspect of Wallis's career, or give a general overview of his whole career. I am a trustee of the Barnes Wallis Foundation.
