Cats Have Only Nine Lives: Memorable moments in air 1943-1993
By Bryan Cox

I have written the following pages for the historical record, and also for the interest of aviation enthusiasts, aspiring flight instructors, practising pilots and lay-persons alike. In respect of my post-WW2 years, spent almost entirely at Ardmore airfield, I have had to resist the tendency to attempt a full history of that airfield and its personnel, about which a very large book could be written. This also applies to the multitude of "great characters" with whom I worked, met, became friends with, or trained during that period of 31 years from 1962 to 1993. Although I have written about some of my close associates at Ardmore, there are a great number of others to whom I can only apologise for not being included in these pages.
