Very few pilots, if any, can claim a flying career as varied and audacious as Neil Williams - RAF pilot, test pilot, noted film and demonstration pilot, acclaimed air display pilot, charter pilot, 13 times British Aerobatic Champion and, in many observer-s eyes, the rightful World Aerobatic Champion.
With a reputation for being able to handle the rarest, oldest and most difficult - and even dangerous - aeroplanes, the pages of Neil Williams- book is filled with evocative types from Spitfire, Mosquito, Lancaster, Sea Fury, Yak, Harvard and Heinkel; to Sopwith Pup, 1912 Monoplane and de Havilland Humming Bird. From Meteor, Canberra and Hunter to Tiger Moth, Pitts and Falcon executive jet.
Neil Williams- airborne experiences were no less adventurous: the exhilaration of a Spitfire first solo; the loneliness of being lost at night over the Indian Ocean; the catastrophic experience of crashing an aircraft in front of 80,000 air show spectators; and his amazing crash landing following an in-flight structural failure - a feat which has entered aviation legend and for which he was awarded the Queen-s Commendation for Valuable Service in the Air.
Now this classic work, one of the best flying books ever written, is re-published with dozens of previously unpublished photographs and three new chapters. This is a book to inspire, a book that captures the true essence, adventure and romance of flight. This is the story of an extraordinary pilot-s life lived to the full in the only place that matters - Airborne.
