Aviation in the Raw
When flying was dangerous and sex was safe…!
Flying has changed. As with the rest of life, procedures have been tightened up, safety is rigorously followed, and political correctness has become paramount. But when this author started his aviation career, the world was a different place...!
Following the progression of his career as a pilot, from the initial training through to flying multi-engined aircrafts to jets, author Mike Bennison brings wit, charm and a small measure of rebelliousness to this entertaining account of life in the air. Full of anecdotes and stories, Mike recounts the lows and highs of his career, whilst always keeping an eye on three topics: aviation disasters (and how they happened), the growth and development of the aviation world, and the amusing (and sometimes frightening) events that happened to him or those around him.
Lord Nuffield and His Double Legacy
Brand New Medical Biography
William Morris’ legacy is immense. From mending bicycles in the house of his parents to becoming the motoring giant of the UK where the MG insignia (Morris Garages) is universally known sixty years after his death... not to mention the two war efforts in which he played a major role, rebuilding the RAF several times over especially during the crucial days of the Battle of Britain in 1940. His interest in, and philanthropy toward, medicine in particular may have been stimulated by his early connections with Sir William Osler, who was Regius Professor of Medicine in Oxford between 1905 and 1919. He endowed the four original Nuffield Chairs of Medicine, Surgery, Obstetrics and Gynaecology, Anaesthetics, and a few years later Orthopaedics. One of the authors (PJM) held the Nuffield Chair of Surgery between 1974 and 2001 stimulating his long-term interest in William Morris. Ennobled as Lord Nuffield in 1934, this book uses both ‘William Morris’ and ‘Nuffield’ or ‘Lord Nuffield’ when referring to him (mainly but not exclusively ‘Morris’ before 1934 and ‘Nuffield’ after 1934).
