In that time – we are talking about the 50’s- it was very unusual to employ a woman in a function in the by men dominated aviation. The bigger […]

    I picked up this little jewel in the children’s section of a book store, on a shelf labeled “8 years upwards”. Well, I would love to be 8 all over again, because this is a beautiful book. Over the course of 50 pages or so, it deals with the basic principles of flying, outlines the […]

    My interest in British aviation dates from a good 25 years ago when, as a boy I was regularly to be found, practically glued to the perimeter fence of RAF Wildenrath in Germany, jotting down airplane numbers.
