Think Like a Bird

An Army Pilot's Story


This book give a vivid and accurate account of the rigours of Army pilot training and of the complex and moving reasons why so many failed to qualify.

As a newly qualified pilot, Alex Kimbell was sent to Aden, where he joined a flight of de Havilland Beavers supporting troops engaged in a war against rebel tribesmen in the twilight of British colonial rule.

The book flows with the most amusing and spirited episodes: landing a Beaver on the heaving deck of a Commando Carrier for the first time; the terror of being sucked into a vast desert sandstorm; and how to deal sensitively with a new flight commander... who couldn't fly!

Read Alex Kimbell's The Unbridgeable Divide, a novel set against the backdrop of flying (Matador fiction title)
