Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Consolidating the success of the first volume, the paperback of which is still in print "Daily Telegraph", obituary writer Jay Iliffe has compiled and edited one hundred additional mini-biographies of outstanding aviators of the last century. Numerous fascinating characters abound, men like John "Cat's Eyes" Cunningham, night fighter ace and test pilot; Ian Harvey, the BEA pilot who safely landed his airliner after a bomb had exploded onboard; Stanislaw Skalski, Polish Battle of Britain ace; Pierre Clostermann, French fighter ace; the marvellous "Bunny" Currant; Ray Hanna, leader of the Red Arrows hired by Steven Spielberg to fly in "Saving Private Ryan"; Bob Morgan, the American pilot of the Memphis Belle; steadfast women like Iris "Fluff" Bower, an RAF nurse who tended wounded soldiers on Normandy beaches; and Felicity Peake, appointed director of the WAAF in 1946 aged just 32.
