November 22, - Published on Amazon. Verified Purchase. The author gives an "up close and personal" perspective of what it is like to be a military pilot, performing his routine operational duties on a day-to-day basis, during a period where the world was not really at war, but where hot spots intermittently erupted. He manages to keep the general reader's interest by not being too technical, even though he is telling tales that his peers, as well as military history readers like myself, will find both interesting and entertaining.

Well written, maintains chronological order, and explains side comments especially if you've read the "Into the Blue" books. If you like military aviation, you'll enjoy this easy read.

The aircraft will have to endure the most extreme conditions. The Russian cold, the hot and humid Asian climate, storms over the Pacific and sandstorms in the desert will push not only the material but also the pilots and the crew onthe ground to their limits.

At the only officially recognised Spitfire flying academy in the world, they give pilots the opportunity to learn how to fly the iconic fighter aircraft. The flying academy also preserves the engineering expertise needed to keep the "Spits" in the air for many years to come.
It is based at the Goodwood Aerodrome in the south of England.
Steve Boultbee Brooks is no stranger to record attempts. He was the first ever pilot to fly from the North Pole to the South Pole in a helicopter.
This required two helicopters and around flight segments and took more than two years. With flying hours, Matt Jones is one of the most experienced Spitfire pilots of our time. By flying around the world, the two pilots hope to showcase the Spitfire's unique engineering history. They want to bring the aircraft to as many people as possible. As ambassador for freedom, the Spitfire will fly to countries in which it has never landed. Boultbee Brooks and Jones also hope to inspire young people to take an interest in mechanics and engineering.
Only if this fascination with mechanics and craftsmanship is preserved will the Spitfire continue to grace the skies for years to come.
