About this product
- DescriptionToday, the sight of a helicopter speeding toward some destination is familiar eugh, but take a moment to consider: is there a life at stake? Is someone in peril and on a knife edge of survival, and will the helicopter crew be selflessly placing themselves in the most dangerous of situations for the sake of saving others? Ever since the First World War, aircraft of the Royal Naval Air Service and later the Fleet Air Arm have operated from land bases and ships at sea, flying search and rescue missions. In this book David Morris, Curator of Aircraft at the National Museum of the Royal Navy, tells the incredible story of Royal Navy search and rescue from the first mission by Sir Richard Bell-Davies VC to the present day.
- Author BiographyDavid Morris is the curator of Aircraft, the Fleet Air Arm Museum. He is keenly interested in the history of mechanical objects and rural history. David is also a Research Fellow at Bournemouth University and lectures regularly. He lives near Somerton in Somerset.
