Geoff Leeming belongs to an elite group of helicopter pilots. He describes his flying experiences in under-powered, and by todayA•s high-tech standards, basic choppers such as the single-engine Whirlwinds and its successor, the Wessex, whether in turbulent tropical conditions, windswept mountains or low level over raging seas. Much of GeoffA•s flying career was in Search and Rescue (SAR) calling for the highest flying skills and the coolest of nerves. It fell to the pilot to make life-and-death decisions for both their crews and those they were rescuing. In addition to many great SAR accounts, this book begins with accounts of action in Borneo in the 1960s and ends with GeoffA•s fascinating account of his flying involvement in the aftermath of the Pan Am Lockerbie disaster. The result is a medley of cockpit experiences A”par excellenceA•.Memoirs of a RAF Helicopter Pilot Geoffrey Leeming.
