Beckoning Skies A Pilot's Story 1936-1960
By B.E. Young

Beckoning Skies is the story of Flight Lieutenant Bryan Young, who served in both the RNZAF and the RAF during World War II. Taken from his logbook and his diary, the author recounts his experiences in a style that is compelling and poignant. His travels covered much of the globe, from his flight training experiences in New Zealand and England, to his duties in Italy, Egypt, and India. His descriptions of his aircraft and the many foibles of the types he flew, which included the Spitfire, the Hurricane, and the Mustang; the comradeship between men in his squadron, the illnesses he faced during his service and the cultures he was exposed to are a mixture of joy and excitement, wonderment and sadness. Beckoning Skies is a written and visual record of what the author describes as 'the most significant period of my life.' Accompanying his vivid textual descriptions are many personal photographs and drawings. This moving account of hard times, good times and bad times draws the reader into a time many will never experience, a time that was hard won and definitive for future generations of New Zealanders.
