The author, a light aviation hobbyist, brings together in this book a collection of absorbing and amusing aviation stories and personal memoirs from the 1950s, as told by people who were flying for pleasure or business. There are tales of first solo flights, tea patrols, air racing, rebuilding and restoring, and adventures both within the United Kingdom and abroad. Some of the chapters have originally appeared in aviation magazines and journals. Illustrated.
