    Flying high

    "Winkle" Brown is probably one of the greatest flyers ever. His CV beggars belief. This fascinating tale of his career in the RN is a must read for all air enthusiasts. No man has flown more different aircraft or made more carrier landings. His nonchalant approach to test piloting is very typically British. Landing a plane to destruction, whith him flying it! All part of the job. He carried out many roles (and rolls) but flying was his great love and it shows.

    Wings on my sleeve

    Wonderful story about a Naval airman in the second world war who became a test pilot with, it seems, a charmed life. Any aviation enthusiast will find his story amazing. The book is very much about his flying experiences, of which Captain Brown has more than could possibly be imagined. But there seems to be so much more that hasn't been covered. There is an episode in which Captain Brown is in Germany at the end of the war and he relates his interrogation of two of the Nazis who ran one of the extermination camps. But the story of this is really just glossed over leaving one with the feeling there is much untold. But still, this is the story of an amazing life, a very good read.
