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.
Episode 3 of 3. The modellers reach Battle of Britain Day - 15 September 1940, when
the RAF threw everything at the massed squadrons of Luftwaffe that were trying to
attack London. It was on this day that Douglas Bader's controversial tactic, the
Big Wing, was successfully deployed as five squadrons flew together in tight formation.
The RAF modellers must try to bring to life a model Big Wing, getting all of their
planes in the sky at once and flying in formation before their final dogfight with
the model Luftwaffe. Last in the series.
