A recent approach was made to us through the National Wind Tunnel Facility to assist in a fund raising effort for a cancer charity. Richard Vaughan, the fund raiser, was going to do a sky dive in just a pair of swimming trunks for this. As part of his preparation he wanted to know what a wind speed of 125mph would feel like, so he asked if he could find out in the deHavilland wind tunnel. See the youtube video to see how we helped him...!"
