Receiving his early training via Lord Trenchard's Aircraft Apprentice Scheme, Tom Lancashire switched from ground crew to flight duties in 1940 and took part in almost 40 bomber raids to Germany. He was eventually shot down over Belgium but escaped with help from the local Resistance. This biography recounts his extraordinary experiences, which continued after the war, as he was involved in important aviation projects for Avro in Canada and Boeing in the USA.
