A History of Aviation in Alderney


ISBN: N/A Categories: ,


This book takes a brisk and affectionate look at a previously neglected topic: the lifetime of powered flight on Alderney.  Packed with information, characters and anecdotes, it covers the period from 1919 to the present day, encompassing the Nazi occupation, the birth (and death) of various airlines, and all the major accidents and incidents that the island and its waters have seen. It is illustrated throughout with both in black and white and colour photographs.

Commemorating the past but also looking to the future and championing Alderney Airport in its 75th year – this book is not solely aimed at the aviation enthusiast or the Alderney resident it also looks at connections with the other Channel Islands of Guernsey, Jersey and Sark, touching on their own aviation stories and considers the many benefits that air links have provided to these island communities. 

Trilanders, Rockhopper and Skymaster and The Red Arrows are just some of the aircraft mentioned.
