Product Description

From the Inside Flap

The mining valley of the Rhondda in Wales is not the natural breeding ground for pilots in peacetime. John H Evans however, was a successful and notable exception to the rule. Although nourished in the Welsh nonconformist tradition, his was always a buccaneering spirit allied to a questing mind. Drawn to flying by his memories of a World War II bomber pilot, his adventures spread from Belem to Berlin; Ramsgate to Rio, the Scillies to San Antonio and Tangier to Toronto. Inadvertently he became involved with the Mafia, was approached to help in the escape of a ‘Great Train Robber’ and aroused the wrath of the Libyans, when he rescued a beautiful blonde from Tripoli. He has flown over 10,000 hours and carried such notables as John Lennon and Yoko Ono, Prime Minister Harold Wilson and Maurice Bishop, the assassinated Prime Minister of Grenada. His entrepreneurial spirit helped to start three UK regional airlines and two jet operations creating almost 2,000 UK jobs in!
the process. Clearly a ‘character’, in his book one can well detect his enjoyment of life, his eye for the main chance-business and ladies alike! Indeed his lack of pomposity and disregard for authority, coupled with a natural humour is typical of the man and is brilliantly encapsulated in this book. Yet his search for his bomber pilot schoolboy hero displays a great sensitivity in this most poignant of passages. Aviation is an international business allowing participants to make contact and develop personal relationships with many cultures and people across the world. It is therefore quite remarkable that John H Evans stands out on this stage and is recognised for his knowledge, vision and will to succeed. In this book his very individual and imaginative style of narration captures the reader’s attention from start to finish, and once started is difficult to put down. So ‘fasten your seatbelt’, as you are taken on a rollercoaster ride of your emotions!
