About the Author

Gordon Cammell served in various Air Force services for twenty years: two years on an exchange assignment with the USAF, four and a half years in the RNZAF and sixteen in the RAF. In that time, he flew thirty-nine types of aircraft including one thousand hours on helicopters in Cyprus and Borneo, where he spend three years in the war against Indonesia. After two and a half years flying jet night fighters he was sent on a two year exchange assignment as a Test Pilot/Project Officer with the USAF at Eglin Air Force Base, Florida. Cammell was the radar officer of the trial team for the F 102 Delta Dagger supersonic interceptor, before it was released into general service with the American Air Force. During one of his test flights, he completed a practice radar interception on a B52 bomber target, with a combined closing speed of Mach 2.5. He and his wife have four children that have grown into solid, American citizens, of whom he is very proud.

    An Interesting and Informative Read

    Posted by Bill Ross on Jul 2nd 2019

    I bought the book because Gordon Cammell was the pilot, and only survivor, of the crash of the Lancaster bomber in which my uncle died over Germany in May of 1943. It provided me with a clear description of how he died. Gordon was a man who clearly loved flying, and the book provides an interesting look at his flying career and later civilian life.
