About this Product
Bill Gunston is a Londoner. At the end of World War 2 he was a flying instructor in the RAF, and as such flew many of the aircraft featured in this volume, including several of the Axis types. In 1951, via what is today's London City University, he joined the editorial staff of Flight International, and in April 1955 was appointed Technical Editor. Here, he worked closely with the artistic genius of Max Millar, Arthur Bowbeer and Frank Munger, and gained a privileged view of just how the great technical 'heart' of the magazine ticked. Bill was later promoted to other duties in what had become International Publishing Corporation (IPC), but decided to leave on the last day of 1970 in order to pursue a career as a freelance writer. The rest is history!
Bill Gunston, OBE, has worked as a professional aviation writer since the late 1940s. With over 300 titles to his name, he is renowned as one of the world's leading experts in his field.
