Members are asked to ignore the 'sold out' message as this item is only available online and direct from the publishers.
The Few Who Flew is an evocative memoir written by one of the last young men to train as a RAF pilot, gaining his ‘Wings’ in April 1957 just days before the end of National Service.
Michael Morris as he was then (he is now Lord Naseby) was selected to do his flying training in Canada alongside fellow British and NATO pilots from seven different countries. Initial training was on Harvards at Moose Jaw in the Prairies and then jet flying on the world’s best trainer at the time, the T-33 Canadair Silver Star. The Few Who Flew reflects Michael’s inherent love of all aspects of aviation. The last three chapters cover ‘Churchill’s Secret Airfield’, RAF Tempsford, Bedfordshire near Michael’s home; his views on the future of aviation in a low carbon world, and then finishing with some provocative thoughts of a one-year ‘Service to the Nation ‘ for all young school leavers.
