    "Just Tell Me When to Cry" by Dick Fleischer, which has a very interesting chapter on Hughes. And the marvellous paperback Patrick Bishop's Fighter Boys.

    That's the feller. The one they used in the film had two test Olympus engines as well as the usual quartet of Nenes, which looked pretty odd for an "airliner". Been looking at DVD's on Fleabay but the cheapest I could find was about £8.00, which seems a lot for something I'll probably only watch once; prolly be on telly the week after I bought it too.

    Now reading The Palace of Eternity, a SF novel by Bob Shaw from 1969, has one of the best opening sentences in a book!
    "In spite of of all his efforts Tavernor was unable to remain indoors when it was time for the sky to catch fire."

    "If Britain Had Fallen" by Norman Longmate, a look at how life in the UK might have been under Nazi occupation. As an aside, does anyone else think we British are a bit selective in boasting that the UK was never invaded, when of course the Channell Islands were occupied?

    "Second From Last In The sack Race" by David Nobbs (2nd time I've read it) which was also televised as "The Life and times of Henry Pratt" If you liked Adrian Mole, you'd love this.
