Format: Hardcover
I have purposefully chosen the first line of this favorite piece of Aviation Verse. There is a link between the contents of this book by Jack Currie and the spiritual dimension of this poem. I doubt if there many other professions where they see the extremes of nature and human cruelty as they do in aviation so it comes as little surprise that a book such as this can find its way onto the bookshelf.
The style of the book pits the sceptic in me against the "believer" in me. I have to say that the believer comes out on top!
The well researched and interesting items will appeal to the aviator and non aviator alike and this book is certainly not written the patronising "aviationspeak" which you might expect.
If you have stood on a windswept station, in a derelict building or indeed an old airfield and wondered about who has gone before you then this is the book for you.
It is ideal for a gift, or to leave by the bedside to pick up at will, both sad and happy it has been a pleasure to read.
The evocative photographs add to the book and I highly recommend the complete package.

Excellent reading on the subject 13 Oct. 2002
By Edric B. Filho - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The late Wing Cdr (RAF) Currie succeeds in telling several stories about WW2 airmen apparitions in a way that moves you to the places where they happened, and you finish the book touched, with a sense of pity for the ones who left so violently and so young. I guess the author now has occupied his place among the heroes whose contacts he so well described in his book. Highly recommended.

Respectful 13 April 2011
By Burgundy Damsel - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This is not a book of scary stories - as it notes in the beginning, none of the tales are intended to disturb your dreams. It is a respectful recounting of the lost military aviators and the places their spirits continue to return to. It's well done, but not necessarily what one expects from a book of "ghost stories".
Authentic aviation ghost stories 4 May 2014
By Slywolff - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Not your usual ghost stories, most relate to events that happened in the UK... and mostly around former airbases, I found the stories well written and interesting. Some of them are very spooky, such as the missing Polish airmen from a crashed Wellington bomber. I've read other books relating to aviation ghosts but this has been the best and while the photos, I felt were not neccesary they did add to the hauntings. Well worth reading but don't pay over the top for the book, it is being reprinted in paperback.
