Welshpool is in for a treat this weekend when the man behind the controls of one of the world’s most powerful fighter planes lands in town for a key note speech.

An evening with Colonel Richard Graham, a retired US Airforce pilot, will be held on Friday from 7.30pm with all proceeds going to the Bob Jones Memorial Air Show and the Salvation Army.

Colonel Graham is a former Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird (pictured) pilot and will be speaking at the Assembly Room in the Town Hall, with entry tickets priced £10 available from the Tourist Information Centre.

He spent seven years flying the world record breaking plane which he has described as “the world’s most secretive, highest and fastest plane”.

The Air Show will be held on June 11 and a line-up of impressive aircraft has already been confirmed.
