” The period after the 1914-1918 war saw, in both the USA and the UK, the emergence of individual daredevil pilots and, in due course, troupes of itinerant aerial artistes who, known as “barnstormers”, relied upon their unusual skills to earn an all too meagre and invariably precarious living.” This book tells the story of Sir Alan Cobham and the other daredevil pilots who toured the country in the early 1930s. Profusely illustrated. [Non-philatelic]
