Donal MacCarron tells the story of an early pioneer aviator who took to the air soon after the Wright brothers proved that man was capable of controlled powered flight. A record-breaking amateur before 1914, Corbett Wilson signed up with the Royal Flying Corps at the outbreak of war. His letters from France to his mother vividly describe the life of a RFC airman in the First World War. He was shot down and killed in 1915.
