Fighter Pilot: The Memoirs of Legendary Ace Robin Olds

Review by Roger Hixon

 

I have just read the book, Fighter Pilot. It's the story of American pilot Robin Olds. A very enjoyable story of a very interesting man, who was involved in many aspects of aviation, from front line fighter/bomber pilot, to working in the Pentagon. He fought in WW2 and Vietnam, with distinction.

Anyone wanting to read this book, please contact me to borrow it.

Flying Across Britain with Arthur Williams

Sunday 19th August

Channel 4

19:00-20:00   

 

Part 3 of 4.  Arthur flies across Scotland, making for the coastline of Argyll and Bute. Along the way, he gets a lesson in the challenges of flying over the Highlands, boards a seaplane for a trip to Loch Lomond, visits one of the world's most celebrated tiny airfields, and goes in search of the wreckage of aircraft from the Second World War in Oban.
