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.

Battle of Britain: Model Squadron

Sunday 23rd September

Channel 4



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.

7.30 for 7.45pm start
