Overview

Fly is Michael Veitch's second collection of 24 interviews with pilots, navigators and gunners - now all in their 80s - who flew during the Second World War. Here are stories of bravery and fear, moments of terror and relief and vivid details of flying under fire. A passion for history and a boyhood obsession with World War II aircraft inspired Michael Veitch to record these stories of combat, fear and comradeship before they vanished.
