Very good paperback - a couple of pages have a small crease on corner otherwise excellent.

The Barnwell brothers in Stirling, the Gibsons in Edinburgh and Preston Watson in Dundee were all to achieve powered flight by 1910. - Just six years after his first solo flight David Mclntyre faced the biggest challenge of his flying career when, piloting an open cockpit Westland Wallace biplane, he flew over Mount Everest on the record-breaking 1933 expedition. That same pioneering spirit fuelled his vision for later challenges - launching a Scottish based aircraft Company that would go on to produce the successful Prestwick Pioneer and Twin Pioneer aircraft; establishing Scottish Airlines during the growth period of commercial travel in the post-war era; struggling through the years of airline nationalisation and developing a major international airport hub at Prestwick. - This book looks at the life of David F. Mclntyre through the pioneering years of aviation and his distinguished career in No. 602 'City of Glasgow' Squadron. Using some previously unpublished Images and accounts of the 1933 Everest flight, the book unveils the drama and near disasters of this early aviation milestone. Information from private letters, photographs and pilot's logbooks have been brought together for the first time in this fascinating portrait, written by Dougal Mclntyre, his son. - David F. Mclntyre is one of Scotland's unsung heroes, perhaps known for his Everest achievement, but less well known for his role in developing a thriving aircraft and airline industry in Scotland. A quiet man of vision and determination, he followed a dream of a Scottish industry leading the world. 146 p. many photos.
