A Personal View of the History of the British Aircraft IndustryeBook - 2014
Crash Landing' seeks to outline for its readers, both technical and non-technical, the build-up of the aircraft industry in the UK. Author Raymond Troughton covers the highs and lows and the successes and failures over the years. In addition, Ray touches on the dismantling, destruction, and eventual decimation of the industry at the hands of unscrupulous financial advisers, investors, and interfering politicians, resulting in Britain being left in a position where the very safety of its citizens is dependent on foreign nations. This book is written by a man who was a lifelong employee within the British aircraft industry.
