Flying In Cornwall

I've had another softback published by Truran. This one looks at a subject close to my heart; it's titled Flying in Cornwall.

I've been collecting information and images on Cornish aviation for over twenty years, so it was difficult to know what to leave out. But I hope we've come up with a neat and hooky volume. A nostalgic feast of stick-and-string, early passenger biplanes, even the odd Spitfire.

In an attempt to prevent an outbreak of anorakism, it's even got pictures of girls in. One girl. A female mechanic from the First World War; we see her
beavering away on a seaplane, overalls clinging to her curves. Irresistible.
