Product Description

This book features 100 fascinating obituaries of men and women who have figured in the story of civil and military aviation history. Ranging from R. E. Bishop who designed the de Havilland Mosquito to Cheshire VC who flew ‘the wooden wonder’, to Tom Sopwith, the pioneer plane maker to Sir Frank Whittle, the jet engine pioneer, Bishop’s obituaries reflect the glories and setbacks of aviation in peace and war. Written with wit, insight, compassion and humour, here is a richly unpredictable medley of colourful personalities.
