From the cover: “This is the story of an enthusiast. As The Duke of Edinburgh says in his foreword: John Severne is a very lucky fellow. There are not many people who have a single-minded ambition about what they want to do with their lives; who manage to realise that ambition, and then turn out to have a real talent for it.

The author paints an informative picture around some of the many aircraft he flew, linking them with historical or political associations. He achieved his boyhood ambition of not only flying in the King’s Cup Air Race, but of actually winning it.

His infectious enthusiasm for the sheer joy of flying oozes from every chapter.”
