Born of Adversity : Britains Airlines%
89930AVI
The book takes a look at the paradoxes of aviation policy from the very beginning as it tells the story of Britain's airlines, the challenges they faced, the opportunities they found, who helped them fly, and who got in the way. It answers such questions as as: What was it like to fly on British airliners before the Second World War? And why did you have to change planes so often? And why did the Conservatives nationalise the airlines, and Labour open up civil aviation for free enterprise?
