Book Description HTML  |   Report this book

A press photographer in a great rush jumps on the wrong aircraft at a local airfield, and only when they are airborne does the young unqualified pilot realizes that it is not his instructor sitting beside him. A death defying drama for them, but an amusing tale told with great humour is a good laugh for the reader.

Having spent a little time as a passenger in a small aircraft I really enjoyed this short tale. Well done!
