Summary

The story of the extraordinary personal lives, motivations, tragedies, and heartaches, which drove The Rt Hon CS Rolls, Horace, Eustace, and Oswald Short, JTC Moore Brabazon, Frank McClean and Captain Murray Sueter together to seek the same goals, challenging society and world governments with their prophetic vision. They helped change the world forever, yet they have never been adequately recognized.

Flying along

Stirring deeds of derring-do by early British aviators. Left with huge admiration for Charlie Rolls and John More-Brabazon.
