5.0 out of 5 stars A brilliant 'read', 13 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Bucket of Sunshine: Life on a Cold War Canberra Squadron (Paperback)
I was test flying at the same time the author and he took over Radar Research Squadron at RAE Bedford from me and later he became as Wing Commander Flying at Boscombe Down, an appointment I had held some years earlier.

However, I've not met him for over twenty five years and I am reviewing "A bucket of sunshine" in an unbiased way as befits an ex test pilot.

I was a reconnaissance Canberra PR7 pilot in RAF Germany six years before Mike. His recollections of operating the Canberra at this time sparked very fond memories of similar experiences during my tour there. So many half-forgotten events and happenings came flooding back into focus.

Mike's use of the written language was always of an enviable standard but in this book he has scaled new heights. Informative, relevant, amusing, this book is a brilliant 'read'. I am really looking forward to the description of his flying instructor and test pilot years.
