This book describes the author's many unusual and exciting experiences over forty years as a military and civil pilot. In the 1960s, after a tour in fighter/ground attack Hunters in the Far East, he was sent on loan to the Sultan of Oman's Air Force during the little-known Dhofar War, where he flew many operations in ground attack, supply dropping and casualty evacuation roles in piston and jet aircraft. The 1970s brought six years as a fast-jet instructor in Gnat, Hunter and Hawk aircraft at RAF Valley and two years with the royal Norwegian Air Force on a Northrop F5 squadron. He finished his service on the iconic Harrier. Civil aviation brought a very wide variety of worldwide experiences as a British Aerospace airline training captain, examiner, test pilot and project manager in the ATP and BAe 146, including to China, Bangladesh, the Caribbean, Indonesia, Turkey and New Zealand.
