The Fleet Air Arm has always had an elite status and an image of 'derring-do' and living on the edge.To mark the Millennium, 95 members of the Fleet Air Arm Officer's Association have recalled their experiences of over 55 years of post war naval flying.These first person accounts pull no punishes. Some are highly amusing, others serious, even tragic. Covered are the piston engined planes, early jets and supersonic nuclear- capable fighter-bombers as well as the full range of helicopters so vital in many theaters.Fly Navy is a unique and entertaining anthology of flying stories, which will delight all with even a passing interest in service life and aviation.The subtitle says it all - this is how it was - for better or for worse.
