TALK DOWN Brian Lecomber. Hodder & Stoughton, London. 1978 First Edition ISBN 0340217367 288pp Signed by Author. Brian Lecomber is one of the most experienced aerobatic pilots in the world. In 21 years of professional display flying he has flown more than 1,800 public performances - an all-time world record for any single pilot. Brian left school at 16 and began a career in journalism, firstly as a general reporter and then specialising in motoring. He was Technical Editor of Car Mechanics - at that time Britain's largest motoring magazine - when he started learning to fly in 1967 with one of the last flying clubs in Britain still operating Tiger Moth biplanes. From the moment of his first solo flight the journalistic career was doomed. For a short time he was the wing-walker in a flying circus, and then became an instructor. In the early '70's he was Chief Instructor of the Antigua Aero Club, in the West Indies, and it was during this time that he started his first book, Turn Killer, based on his flying circus time coupled with first-hand experience of Mafia activity in the Caribbean. Returning to England in late '74 he became a full-time author for the next four years, following Turn Killer with Dead Weight and the international best-seller, Talk Down. His books have been translated into 16 languages. Brian has been British Freestyle Aerobatic Champion, and has accumulated a number of other awards and honours including, in 1999, the Guild of Air Pilots Sword of Honour for services to display flying. He has flown more than 6,000 hours (including more than 300 hours actually on live public display) and is an Examiner and Display Evaluator on behalf of the British Civil Aviation Authority. 'Talk Down was his third and best book to date and on publication he was able to demonstrate that the plot of this exciting novel of flying was entirely possible. This dedication copy has been signed on the title page. the book is in MINT condition in a MINT unclipped dustwrapper. Ref J5 Size: 288pp. N° de ref. de la librería 002852
