Flying with the Fleet Air Arm in the 1950's and 1960's. The Royal Navy still maintained a significant aircraft carrier force and was changing from WW2 vintage propeller driven aircraft to jets, prop-jets and helicopters. The author sampled them all. In the end he was severely bitten by one, ending his flying career.Written with a light and engaging touch, a look at life in a navy now lost forever.Those familiar with BBC radio comedy programmes will, in Chapter 3, find that "The Navy Lark" might have been closer to the truth than we ever thought - "Ev'rybody Down!".
