Fighter Pilot: The Memoirs of Legendary Ace Robin Olds
Review by Roger Hixon
I have just read the book, Fighter Pilot. It's the story of American pilot Robin
Olds. A very enjoyable story of a very interesting man, who was involved in many
aspects of aviation, from front line fighter/bomber pilot, to working in the Pentagon.
He fought in WW2 and Vietnam, with distinction.
Anyone wanting to read this book, please contact me to borrow it.
The life of the most glamorous plane ever built - told by the people whose lives
she touched. We uncover rare footage telling the forgotten row between the French
and British governments over the name of Concorde which threatened to derail the
whole project. On the eve of the opening of Bristol's multi-million pound aerospace
museum, a cast of engineers, flight technicians and frequent fliers tell the supersonic
story aided by Lord Heseltine and Dame Joan Collins - and we meet the passenger who
shared an intimate moment with The Rolling Stones.
