About the Author

He is the author of Secrets of the Spitfire: The Story of Beverley Shenstone, The Man Who Perfected the Elliptical Wing and Secret Wings of World War II: Nazi Technology and the Allied Arms Race published by Pen and Sword Books in 2012 and 2015 respectively.


"British flag carrier BOAC, later BA, effectively and deliberately sabotaged the commercial success of the VC10 because it wanted to buy Boeing airliners. The author has provided an excellent account of the political battles and the commercial skulduggery, the impressive service of the VC10s with those airlines that had the wisdom to buy it, and its outstanding service as a transport and tanker with the RAF. Much Recommended"--FIRE Reviews
"I enjoyed this book very much, it is an entertaining and stimulating read - not just for VC10 enthusiasts but also for anyone interested in the history of aircraft manufacturing and airline operation in Britain."--Ulster Airmail Magazine
