In Hampshire Skies by Colin Cruddas
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Hampshire is a county unsurpassed in aviation history and reputation. From the relocation of the Army balloon factory to Aldershot at the end of the nineteenth century to the present day development of the Farnborough F1 air-taxi, Hampshire has witnessed many innovations in British aeronautical research. 'Colonel' Samuel Franklin Cody made the first manned powered flight in Britain from Farnborough; Geoffrey de Havilland, later to become one of the most famous names in aviation, also made his first flight in Hampshire. The county hosted the Schneider Trophy races in 1929 and 1931, and is still home to the Society of British Aerospace Companies air spectacular, held every two years. In Hampshire's Skies is a resourceful and knowledgeable account of the county's aviation record, complemented by over 200 photographs, many previously unpublished.
