About the Author

A career journalist, Michael Cumming retired having worked on weekly, evening and daily newspapers and in public relations, latterly editing house journals for international companies. In the RAF from 1945 to 1948, he was with No. 305 Squadron in Germany, at No. 1 Group HQ and with the Air Ministry Servicing Development Unit. He was the first journalist to fly with the RAF aerobatic team, the Black Arrows, in a two-seat Meteor leading the display. All five previous books cover aviation aspects of the Second World War.
