About this title


Ferry Command was widely acclaimed for its graphic portrayal of war-time flying. The author takes the reader into the cockpit of the Ferry Command Catalina flights between Bermuda and Scotland during the hard winter of 1942/43, 24-hour flights that tested men and machine to the ultimate. No less absorbing is the story of the polar flight between the United Kingdom and Canada's West Coast in a Handley Page Bomber. The crews of RAF Ferry Command were the true pioneers of long range over-ocean flying, and the story of this flying, made without the sophistication of modern avionics, makes gripping reading.
