On This Day

Happy Birthday to Leslie Nielsen, who was born on the 11th February 1926, and would have been 92 today.

Famous for his comedy roles in the 1980s, Nielsen also had credentials as a formidable acting talent thanks to his performances in films including Forbidden Planet and The Poseidon Adventure. 

Arguably his most popular role was his performance in Airplane! in 1980, in which he played Dr. Rumack. You can catch Airplane! this March as part of our Spring series at Aerospace Bristol on Thursday 8th March. Find out more here.
