Description
In this sequel to Final Flights, aviation archaeologist Ian McLachlan reconstructs the dramatic last flights of World War II airmen, including that of the first B-17 Flying Fortress to fall in combat from the USAAF's 447th Bomber Group, the final flight of an intruder Mosquito pursuing a German night fighter, the courage of a Lancaster pilot responsible for six lives aboard a burning aircraft, and the story of a heroic Belgian pilot's last flight in a Spitfire. McLachlan and his colleagues reconstruct these events from such evidence as buried wreckage, eyewitness accounts, and contemporary documentation, both to bring recognition to the individual flyers involved and to shed new light on the air war over Britain and Europe.
