The Daily Telegraph Book of Airmen's Obituaries ePub

Ranging from R. E. Bishop, who designed the de Havilland Mosquito, and 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.Amid a host of pilots profiled are Jeffrey Quill, Bob Stanford Tuck, Ginger Lacey, Adolf Galland, Johnnie Johnson, Peter Townsend and Monique Agazarian, an Air Transport Auxiliary pilot who on VE day flew the length of Piccadilly at low level in a Spitfire.

Also featured are lesser-known heroes such as Jimmy Wright, the combat aerial cameraman blinded on active service who was to become a famed 'Guinea Pig' and film producer. Written with wit, insight, compassion and humor, here is a fitting tribute to the courageous men and women of military and civil aviation.
