NOTE: This purchase will raise @£9.00 for the charities, once our carriage and distribution costs have been paid. When Ian Cowie, Dim Jones and Chris Long set out to produce a compendium of stories of flying in the Royal Air force - Out of the Blue - I doubt they could have anticipated what a successful venture it would be and one that has raised many thousands of pounds for service charities. Well, quite simply, they have done it again. Volume 2 contains another heady mixture of true stories that range from the amazing to the downright scary - all told with a sense of humour that was, and is, the hallmark of that band of people who have had the privilege to fly in the military arena. When I meet friends who shared the same thrills - and spills - of flying high performance aircraft close to the limits in order to get the job done, I think there is common theme to our nostalgia. And that is the "banter" - that irrepressible no holds barred, adrenaline fuelled, exchange between comrades in arms where there is no hiding from even the minor transgression. It is something we all miss but sometimes relive when reunions gather together somewhat greyer and more portly individuals than we were in days of yore. You can now share in these stories in this book which will I am sure give you a fascinating and most amusing insight into flying life in the Royal Air Force. I commend this book to you and please remember that the proceeds go to the charities that support service men and women, and their families, who have given so much for their country. Fasten your seat belts......!
