content_pasteThis 2003 book is a sort of "oral history" of the BoB, little on the strategy/politics and hardware, mostly personal stories based on conversations, old letters, diaries, etc. of the fighter boys themselves. Plenty of flying and action, but focused on the personal stuff.
content_pasteWay back in the distant mists of time I attended a primary school in Australia. One day an English migrant lad turned up and started raving about an action / adventure TV show which had the most incredible aircraft.... piloted by puppets! Needless to say we thought he was quite mad and attributed his ravings to the effects of the tropical sun. Little did we know! A couple of years later Thunderbirds turned up on our TV screens and started for many of us a lifelong fascination with aviation. In this exhibit I compare the 1966 ac with the 2004 versions.
