Wondered if any members were aboard HMS CENTAUR in October 1962, when she took part in a trial at Toulon? She catapult launched the third Scimitar Prototype, WW 134, unmanned for an aircraft ditching trial in conjunction with(I think) the Aeronavale of the FN. I left 'Centaur' in April 1962 and rejoined her in February 1963 and so missed that bit of fun. It would be useful to know some details about the exact nature of the trial, what the objectives were, was the a/c launched with the engines running, or 'dead' was there any underwater filming and did the trial have a title? It was conducted by the RAE/A&AEE, ie, Boscombe Down, Cranfield and Bedford. The FAA Museum do not have any details. I believe the wreck was not recovered after the launch. Also, is there possibly an RAE/A&AEE Museum somewhere?
