In his short life Derry became known for his brilliance as a test pilot, and was loved and respected for his personal qualities. In this authoritative biography the authors trace his life story, and the part he played in a thrilling era of aviation. At the end of the Second World War, John Derry was the commanding officer of 182 Squadron, flying Hawker Tempest fighters, and then joined the Central Fighter Establishment as the RAF entered the jet age with the Gloster Meteor. Within six years he had become one of Britain’s foremost test and demonstration pilots.
