Barnes wallis, what happened to him after the war?
Amongst other things he helped design the swing-wing system that is seen on aircraft such as the F111 and F-14 Tomcat. He also pioneered the design of remote control aircraft because this wouldn't endanger the life of aircrew (he was greatly affected by the huge loss of life on Operation Chastise - The Dams Raid).
Barnes Wallace was made a Fellow of the Royal Society in 1945, retired in the 1960's and was knighted in 1968. He died on 30 October 1979.

Here's a load of facts about the guy...
He was done for fraud - kept bouncing cheques.
After the War, Barnes did not stop designing and inventing. He carried on until he was forced to retire, at the age of 83, and even this did not stop him. He had ideas for swing-wing planes, such as the Swallow, hypersonic aircraft and other modifications and improvements for the air industry. Barnes also invented the non-misting, glassless mirror which is made out of unbreakable and non-flammable polyester. One of these mirrors was even sold to Buckingham Palace!
Barnes received a knighthood for his work and service to his country in 1968. He was also presented with a 10, 000 pounds government award which he gave to his old school and made an Honorary Fellow of the Royal Aeronautical Society.
Barnes died on 30th October 1979, at the age of 92, and his obituary appeared in all of the major newspapers.His funeral was held at St Lawrence, Effingham on the 3rd November.A memorial service was also held a year later at St Pauls Cathedral, attended by the Prince of Wales. His contribution to the engineering world will always be remembered.
