A pilots tale spanning the years from biplane days to his occupancy in the left hand seat of a Tristar.
Funny and terrifying in turns, An underrated must for any aviation enthusiast.
Hard to get now, deserves a reprint.

This is one of my favourite books ( not just becuase it's signed ) and I've read it about 12 times..maybe more! Basically the story of one, Mr Arthur Whitlocks from leaving school to his retirement from commercial aviation. It's full of interesting, dangerous, and downright fun escapades. I love the sketches. drawn by Mr Whitlock, that really help to bring the story out from the pages.

One of my fave parts is when he has a very superstitious local crew on board his ageing airliner and for giggle
