Air-route development in Africa was a result of Sir Alan Cobham's 1929 flight through and round Africa in a flying-boat. Lady Cobham accompanied her husband throughout the journey. This work features Sir Alan Cobham's account of his journey. First published in 1930, it is illustrated with over 50 photographs from the trip, from the family archive.
Sir Alan Cobham was a pioneering aviator and a great figure in the history of aviation. Colin Cruddas is the Cobham family archivist. He has unearthed some new treasures for the revised edition; this is his fifth book for Tempus.
