From the cover: Plane Speaking is the fruit of a lifetimes passion for aircraft. Few people have Bill Gunstons grasp of aviation history, his wide knowledge of technical developments and his insight into the complex web of politics, corporate manoeuvring and inventive genius that is international aviation. In this book he draws on a wealth of inside knowledge and the not inconsiderable benefits of hindsight to throw light on 45 moments in aviation history, from the first flying machines and strange deaths of First World War fighter aces to the first jet fighter, the Comet, and the ill-fated TSR2.
