This is the deluxe slip-cased, leather-bound edition of the book that is a unique collaboration between flying legend Alex Henshaw and artist Michael Turner, blending paintings, photographs and the subject’s own narrative into a captivating celebration of his remarkable life in the air from 1932 to 1948. There were three phases to his flying: his headline-making competitive exploits pre-war, culminating in a London-Cape Town-London record that still stands; his vital war work testing aircraft, first for Vickers-Armstrong at Weybridge and then for Supermarine at Castle Bromwich; and his post-war activities throughout Africa. Each significant episode of those years has its own chapter, from learning to fly in a de Havilland DH 60 Gipsy Moth to a final long-distance African trip in a Miles Gemini. This is a very special book that all aviation enthusiasts will treasure.
