Sky Fever - The Autobiography of Sir Geoffrey de Havilland
|INSIDE:||12 black & white photographs|
Sir Geoffrey de Havilland was one of the world's true pioneers of powered flight.
Without experience, plans or instructions, he built his own first flying machine and the engine to power it nearly 70 years ago, and by painstaking trial and error taught himself to fly.
His autobiography contrives to tell the story of British aviation through the people and the events with which he was associated, while revealing his own unusually powerful, compassionate and diversified personality.
