New book – ‘Flight From The Croft’ by Bill Innes


New book:

‘Flight from the Croft’ by Bill Innes

A frequently amusing account of one man’s pursuit of an unlikely dream in a golden era of commercial aviation expansion.

· There are copious good quality illustrations – some of BEA Herons took my eye in particular. …well written, with lashings of humour, and will no doubt prove very nostalgic for those many members who started their commercial career in the piston era. ‘Air Pilot’

· His accounts of planes and the people involved with them are both perceptive and amusing. Go, fly with Bill! ‘Scottish Islands Explorer’

· …funny, full of anecdotes and bristling with unforgettable characters. ‘West Highland Free Press’

· …an inspirational book…. … brings vividly to life a world that is now long gone. …should be regarded as essential reading by anyone with an interest in aviation, and especially commercial aviation. ‘Undiscovered Scotland’
