It’s the centenary of the formation of the Royal Air Force

I suppose it was inevitable that I would grow up with a lifelong interest in the RAF and aircraft because my father was a fighter pilot in the service at the end of the Second World War although he was too young to see action.

Many years later, I married the daughter of a famous Czech night intruder pilot of the Second World War and wrote his biography entitled “Night Hawk”.

If you’re interested in the RAF and the Second World War, including the role of the Spitfire and the Hurricane, you might like to check out the aviation section of my web site.
