[This is one of four books of blunders, written by Geoffrey Regan, which I am listing for sale on Trade Me today. The others are MILITARY BLUNDERS, NAVAL BLUNDERS and ROYAL BLUNDERS.] review:

"FLYING BLUNDERS is a fascinating and highly informative look at some of the less glorious moments in the history of aerial warfare. While the principal focus of the book is post-1914, it also examines the early abortive attempts at manned flight in the Renaissance period, as well as the first faltering attempts to harness balloons to military purposes in the 18th and 19th centuries. From the grimly funny tale of the miss-design of the British B.E.9, a First World Ware plane whose gunner risked decapitation every time he swung round to fire at the enemy, to the tragedy of the Anglo-American invasion of Sicily in 1943, FLYING BLUNDERS offers a wealth of absorbing narrative and anecdote that is always thought-provoking and entertaining."
