This extremely scarce publication, signed by the author to the title page, is the second volume in a trilogy setting out the story of test flying from Salmesbury and Warton aerodromes at Preston in Lancashire. The book examines the development of test flying in the area from the 1960s into the 1980s, following the careers of a number of test pilots, such as Roland Beaumont, navigators and their colleagues.
