Synopsis:

Danger and excitement, courage and selflessness, and gripping stories of life and death in the air: Lady Luck took these heady ingredients and mixed them into the lethal cocktail that is military flying in peace and war. From WWI biplanes to twenty-first-century fast jets, mid-air collisions and many other crashes, hundreds of airmen from all corners of the world left their mark—quite literally—on the landscape and collective memory of the East Midlands. This book ensures these airmen cease simply to be names carved on a cold memorial stone or entries in some dusty, long-forgotten documents. They come vividly alive again, with backgrounds and personalities and patriotic or duty reasons for being where they are when tragedy struck. Dying To Fly brings their courage and human-interest stories into the light of day, remembers them with respect and pays tribute to their passing.
