There really are 'more things in heaven...'
on 29 January 2015
A truly fascinating read, especially for those of us who have spent time where never lark nor ever eagle flew. The honesty with which the writer exposes himself to those whose scepticism and censure would normally result at the very least, in grounding and a spell in the room with bouncy wallpaper, makes these stories even more impressive. Mr Caidin draws on much Stateside material, naturally, but it was with great pleasure that I found that the skies and aerodromes of wartime and peacetime England, Wales and Scotland are so well represented in this thought provoking book. If you have ever stood on the crumbling asphalt of one of those many 'ghosts in the grass' that cover our countryside, relics of a past conflict, and have experienced the hair-raising imagining of the snarl of Merlins or the rumble of great radial engines - well perhaps you weren't imagining it after all. The modern world of private and commercial aviation is just as well served by the unexplainable it seems, and it is a measure of how well Mr Caidin has researched his material that he is happy to offer alternative and more prosaic answers to some 'paranormal' problems such as the loss of BSAA Avro Tudor 'Star Tiger' in the Bermuda Triangle.
Altogether an unputdownable book and one which I'm sure will make many of us look upwards far more often.
